We’ve all been there. You’re driving along, going about your day, when out of the corner of your eye, you see a dead animal on the side of the road.

Whether its a baby raccoon or a doe with a bevy of children roaming around the wilderness, there’s just something so disheartening about the loss of an animal’s life. Perhaps the driver was driving too fast, or maybe the animal just didn’t know any better than to try to travel from point A to point B?

But if this video teaches us anything, it’s that you should always check to see if they’re still alive…

Looks can be deceiving!

Thank god these heroes were there!

Without their quick acting, who knows what would have happened to this poor baby.
