One user wrote, "Videos like this make me cry tears of joy. All animals deserve love and compassion."
"Why people can't understand this small thing, every animal has feelings too... we all the same in different bodies," added another.
"It makes me sad that all those other bulls are just watching him happily frolick, and they don't get to do the same," commented another user.
The story of Bandit reminds us about the horse in Romania with chained legs. Ovidiu Rosu, a vet with Four Paws, saw the horse struggling out in a field.
As it turns out, the horse had figured out how to run away from his masters with his legs still chained.
Rosu, who knew there was just one thing to do, put the horse down with sedatives. He then went directly to work in freeing the pony from his ties.
Once up, the horse knew to thank his hero with the winning gesture possible – a cuddle of appreciation.
