The MAGNUM presents: 5 Amazing Stories of True Animal Heroes Saving People from Certain
Death Winnie the Wonder Cat
“Winnie the Wonder Cat” sprang into action when the house filled with carbon monoxide.
The mother says Winnie started meowing and scratching her to get her to wake up. When
she did, she was barely able to call 911 and delusional when the police arrived.
Winnie’s owner said “If it wasn’t for Winnie, screaming and hollering and carrying
on, we wouldn’t be here today.” The family thinks the carbon monoxide came
from a broken gas powered sump pump in their basement, and officials said if the cat had
waited another 5 minutes, the outcome would have been horrible and most likely a coroner
case instead. Toby the Golden Retriever
Toby, a 2-year-old golden retriever, saw his owner choking on a piece of fruit and began
jumping up and down on the woman’s chest. The dog’s owner believes the dog was trying
to perform the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life.
Debbie Parkhurst, 45, said she was eating an apple at her home when a piece lodged in
her throat. She attempted to perform the Heimlich maneuver on herself but it didn’t work.
After she began beating on her chest, she said Toby noticed and got involved.
The next thing she knew, Toby was up on his hind feet with his front paws on her shoulders.
He pushed her to the ground, and once she was on her back, he began jumping up and down
on her chest. That’s when the apple dislodged and Toby started licking her face to keep
her from passing out Mila the Beluga Whale
A 26-year-old diver was taking part in a free diving contest without breathing equipment
among the whales in a tank of water more than 20 feet deep and chilled to Arctic temperatures.
When she tried to return to the surface, she found her legs crippled by cramp from the
freezing cold. At that point Mila the beluga started pushing
the diver to the top of the pool with her leg in Mila’s mouth. Thankfully belugas,
which live in the Arctic and sub-Arctic and feed on small fish and squid, have only small
teeth and the diver was uninjured. Officials said she’s a sensitive animal
who works closely with humans and that the diver owes Mila her life. The diver, reliving
the moment, agreed that she thought it was over for her until she felt a force pushing
her up from the bottom. Kilo the Pit Bull
Justin Becker and his girlfriend were returning home from running errands when they heard
a knock at the door. A man dressed as a FedEx delivery man told Becker his scanner wasn’t
working and asked if he could go inside and grab a pen to sign for the package. Just minutes
later this would turn into a home invasion robbery attempt, shots would be fired, Kilo
— Becker’s 12-year-old pit bull — would go after the thug and take a bullet to the
head to save his owner. The bullet ricocheted off the skull and went
straight down and exited at the neck. Miraculously, after veterinary care, Kilo was up and going
for walks just three days after being shot. Kerry the Horse
Fiona Boyd, a 40-year-old mother of two, was alone at home on her family farm at Chapmanton,
near Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbrightshire, when she heard the cries of a young calf in distress.
When she went outside, she saw the calf had become separated from its mother and could
not find her among the other cows in the herd. She decided to move the calf and its mother
into a shed together, but as she approached the calf, its mother finally heard its distressed
cries and charged at Boyd, knocking her to the ground and stampeding over her.
As she scrambled for cover, she saw her 15-year-old chestnut mare Kerry, who was grazing nearby,
kicking wildly at the cow. As the horse hit at the cow, Boyd managed to crawl 20 feet
to safety under an electric fence.
