A happy ending to an otherwise dark and scary day of man and donkey after the wildfire

One day, Travis Ochs was faced with a surprise. He met his beloved donkey named Ennis.

What a lovely moment!

Ochs had tried his best to move Ennis, along with several horses, into a trailer bring them to safety. But as the flames approached, he was forced to leave without Ennis and one horse named Adam. A ranger who’d rushed out to assist Ochs insisted he make that devastating decision.

“It was horrifying,” Ochs told the Daily Camera.

He never thought that they would meet each other again and man was so sad about it.

But finally Ochs has to be happy again because his donkey is safe and sound.

And though Ochs did lose material possessions to the blaze, their survival is what matters most.

“I’m just thankful we were all able to get out of there alive,” Ochs said. “There were a couple times I didn’t think that was going to happen. It was a happy ending to an otherwise dark and scary day.”
