As the Camp Fire spread in Paradise, California, residents in the area struggled to get their pets and evacuate to safety, but it seems one animal found a way to keep itself safe. Jeff Hill found a mule in a backyard swimming pool when he returned to his evacuated neighborhood.
Hill says he discovered the mule tangled up in the pool cover, which he says helped keep the animal from drowning. The mule was tired and shivering, but Hill was able to free it. And there’s a happy ending - the mule was brought to a rescue and is expected to make a full recovery.
