Animal Rights will get you if you go round putting cats in trees, or horses in muddy ditches so how do you get to know what to do?
Here is a solution from England.
Firefighters train on fake horse
A life-sized mannequin horse has been bought by Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service to help firefighters train in animal rescue.
The horse has been funded by the RSPCA which has contributed £14,000 to support rural safety in the county.
Chief Fire Officer Andy Goves said: "This will ensure people and animals are better protected during difficult and traumatic rescues."
More than 60 firefighters are currently undergoing animal rescue training.
Specialist animal rescue equipment is also being bought and firefighters from Stratton and Amesbury are being trained in rescue techniques.
"We carried out a thorough review of our rural safety procedures earlier this year and it became clear that we needed to make a large-scale investment in more specialist equipment and training," said Chief Fire Officer Andy Goves.
"Wiltshire has such an expanse of rural areas within its boundaries that we saw the need to increase and further develop our specialist knowledge within the service."
Two officers based at the service headquarters will support the specialist team by visiting farms, holding talks in the rural community as well as mapping and identifying water sources and other risk critical information such as the presence of gas cylinders, which are extremely dangerous to firefighters when involved in fire.
The Wiltshire Mid branch of the RSPCA contributed £11,000 towards the equipment, with a further £3,000 given in total by the North Wiltshire and South Wiltshire & District branches.
