Animals can sometimes emerge in strange and perilous settings. And it is during those moments that they require our assistance.
The train conductor performed such a kind thing. He came out to help the young turtle who had emerged on the rails and stopped it. He positioned it on the opposite side of the tracks so that it would not be hurt by passing trains.
The man returned and went on his walk after waiting till the animal had passed quickly and enthusiastically. He explained to the passengers why he performed the way he did, and they responded with admiration and happiness.
The guy believes that all living animals are his friends, and that assisting them is not merely a nice deed, but also a responsibility.
