A little help from my friend: Tortoise saves buddy

Kent County

BOWNE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Sometimes you just need a friend to lend you a hand.

Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park in Alto shared video recorded by a visitor, Hillary Ann, of a tortoise coming to the rescue of a penmate that had somehow wound up on its shell. The tortoise pushed and shoved for several seconds before flipping the other tortoise back onto its feet.

In addition to tortoises and other reptiles, Boulder Ridge is home to giraffes, parrots and many other animals.

The park is open for the season through Oct. 21.
