If you want to impress people on the Internet (or start a religion in ancient Mesopotamia), you should try being known as someone who protects lambs. That's just what professional trail runner Ricky Lightfoot did a few weeks back when he was on Great Gable, a mountain in England.

What he found was a baby lamb caught on the mountainside, which he helped climb back to safety:

"Please don't leave me with these strangers."

Heartwarming.
