A leisurely dog walk quickly turned into a dramatic rescue mission for one Canadian father as he enlisted his three children to help save a sodden bee.
Montreal resident David Freiheit was walking his dog on a rainy day near his home when he came across a wet bee clinging to the side of the pavement.
Video by Freiheit shows him launching a rescue operation with his kids, carrying the soaking bee on a plank of wood to a plant on the family’s front porch.
Freiheit left the bee to dry out, and returned several hours later. His closeup footage shows the bee respond with a raised leg to “high-five” Freiheit’s finger. By next morning, the bee had flown away. Credit: David Freiheit via Storyful
