“They swam right toward the boat,” Tom said. “Then they started to circle the boat. They were looking up like they needed help.” Tom knew they had to get the deer out of the water if they were to survive.
The deer willingly came on-board and sat on the deck. One of the deer was hypothermic so Tom administered massage to warm him. “The last one was in really poor shape. He was very hypothermic. I massaged him for 20 minutes trying to warm him up. He bleated like a little lamb. I think he was appreciative.”
Had to share this amazing story! Big thumbs up to Tom and his family! (Y)
Girl Flies With Controlling Older Man, So Stewardess Secretly Slips Her A Note To Save Her Life
Shelia Fedrick has been a flight attendant for years. One day, she noticed a teenage girl flying with an older man. Though the man was well-dressed, the girl looked unkempt and disheveled.
“Something in the back of my mind said something is not right,” Shelia told WTSP. “He was well-dressed, that’s what kind of got me because why is he well dressed and she is looking disheveled and out of sorts?”
She noticed that whenever she asked the girl a question, it was the man who answered. He was controlling her. Shelia told the girl under her breath to go to the bathroom. She left a note on the mirror for her, and the girl’s written response was chilling.
“She wrote back on the note and said ‘I need help,’” Shelia told NBC.Shelia told the pilot about the situation. When the plane landed, police were there to apprehend the creep. She left the girl, who was around 14 or 15 at the time, her phone number. The girl was so grateful that she kept it and called Shelia a few weeks later.
It turns out that the teenager was a victim of human trafficking. She had been kidnapped and was being sold for sexual exploitation or slavery. Shelia’s instincts completely changed the course of this young woman’s life.
Shelia decided to share her story in the wake of a new program that trains flight attendants to spot the signs of human trafficking. To learn about this life-saving new program, watch the video below.
Please SHARE Shelia’s story to give her the hero’s recognition she deserves!

New resident, Toby Bobcat, wanted to stop by and say hello to all of you! He is one of 15 new animals that have recently moved here from Colorado. The owner of the Colorado facility decided to sell the property, which meant over 100 exotic animals needed new homes. We are proud to have participated in such a large-scale project, and are overjoyed to be able to provide a safe, enriching home to these beautiful animals. As soon as computers are back up and running for all of us, we’ll have plenty of new photos to share. Stay tuned!
Navy veteran Jerry Wayne Pino died on Dec. 12th in Long Beach, Mississippi. He was 70 years old.
We don’t know that much about Jerry. He was born in Baton Rouge and joined the Navy in New Orleans. He was a petty officer third class in Vietnam. That’s the extent of his biography.

No family. No friends. He died alone.
Jerry’s body lay unclaimed for several weeks at Riemann Family Funeral Homes.
“No one stepped forward,” funeral home worker Cathy Warden told me. “He just didn’t have any family.”
Miss Cathy explained the situation to her colleague Eva Boomer and together they decided something must be done to give this veteran a proper send off.
“Something had to be done with respect,” Miss Cathy said. “We had to give him what he deserved. Nobody should go alone.”
Miss Eva, who is also a veteran, wondered if some of the boys at Long Beach High School might be willing to serve as pallbearers. It was a longshot, though, seeing how most of the students were out on Christmas break.

But Miss Cathy called her teenage son Bryce who in turn texted some of his friends – and within a matter of minutes, six young men had volunteered to serve at a stranger’s funeral.
Nobody should go alone.
“It was the right thing to do,” 17-year-old Bailey Griffin told me. “He served our country. He fought for our rights. For him to be buried with nobody there was just sad. I told myself I was going to do it and I did it.”
They buried Petty Officer Third Class Jerry Pino on a Tuesday. The sun was shining and there was a cool, gulf coast breeze meandering through the Biloxi National Cemetery. An honor guard stood at attention.
The boys were smartly dressed in khaki pants and buttoned down shirts and neck ties. They solemnly took their places on either side of the flag-draped coffin and escorted a man they did not know to his final resting place.
“I went out there for the service and cried the whole way through,” Miss Cathy said. “He had no one there. This veteran had nobody standing there but these boys.”
But what happened at the end of the funeral was incredibly moving and poignant.
The flag that had draped Jerry’s coffin was folded and presented to the six young men from Long Beach High School, home of the Bearcats.
“It touched my heart,” Miss Cathy said.
The Sun Herald newspaper shared a message from the mother of one of the young pallbearers.
“Proud mom when he told me that no one should be buried without people who care present, especially a veteran,” Stacie Tripp wrote on Facebook.
Evidence that moms and dads are doing something right in Long Beach, that’s what Miss Cathy said.
“Our community is teaching these boys from the heart how it should be – how to care,” she said.
They are still trying to figure out what to do with the flag that draped Jerry’s coffin. It’s being encased in glass – along with a plaque that bears his name.
There’s talk about putting the flag on display at the high school or perhaps inside the locker room where four of the pallbearers play football.
It would be a fitting tribute to a man who died alone but who was buried surrounded by his fellow countrymen.
And oh what a lesson for the rest of us – demonstrated by a group of young boys from Mississippi who committed in their hearts that nobody should go alone – especially a veteran.
