A young man with a heart of gold walked all the way to the George Traffic Department to get help for an injured Dikkop.


George, South Africa (25 February 2024) – The George SPCA praised a young man who rescued an injured bird back in December 2023. The post got lost in all the holiday business but his actions still deserve public praise.

They shared how the unnamed young man came across the injured Dikkop. He then scooped it up and walked all the way to the George Traffic Department. Here he explained that he was trying to save the bird.

A traffic officer, touched by his actions, offered the young man a lift to the George SPCA where he was able to hand the bird over to the team for treatment.

Sadly, the Dikkop’s injuries were too severe and the bird was put down. Thankfully, it didn’t have to suffer on the roadside and for that the young man is our biggest hero!

As sad as the loss of the Dikkop is, Branch Manager Brenda Spark shared that “it is just wonderful to experience the young caring for those that don’t have a voice.”

So while his actions may have been two months ago, they continue to inspire to this day!
