Charlotte the spider comes to the aid of her pig friend Wilbur in the children”s classic, but now the roles have been reversed in a real life rescue.
A video posted on YouTube shows a piglet paddling to the aid of a baby goat who was stuck in a pond at a petting zoo in the U.S.
In the short clip, filmed by a visitor, a young goat squeals as it appears to have got its hoof stuck under a rock in the water.
