Run to the shore
Fortunately, the men were able to grab the baby and started carrying him to shore. The baby zebra panicked and was in shock from the water.
He desperately cried out to alert his mother and definitely learned that even a small pool of water can be fatal. Without the help of the zookeepers, the baby zebra would have drowned. While the men carried the baby to safety, everyone waited for the mother’s reaction. Zookeepers knew the mother could rush in and make this rescue even more dangerous than it was.
