It only took me slightly more than a decade to figure out how to spell the name, Linny. I’ve always thought it was Lenny.
Also, Idina Menzel had a Wonder Pets stunt?
You’re probably thinking, “What does that have to do with the story? Why does she always ramble on about the most random things?”
Ever heard of the term, word count? I’m kidding! As a matter of fact, Wonder Pets is hella relevant to this story.
The trio makes for a pretty solid analogy for the good work that the Royal Malaysia Police has done to save the stranded animals in the flood-stricken town of Kota Tinggi in Malaysia.
What’s gonna work? Teamwork!
Dangerous Weather Warnings in Kota Tinggi
The district of Kota Tinggi is one of the nine affected areas in the state of Johor.
The Malaysian Meteorological Department has issued Kota Tinggi dangerous weather warnings following a chain of floods and heavy rain, reported The Star.
According to The Straits Times, the floods have displaced at least 1,071 civilians from Kota Tinggi. The rising flood levels have also resulted in the closure of two roads in the district.
Of course, the residents aren’t the only ones affected by the turmoil.
Helping Our Furry Friends and Saving the Day
On 15 December, the Royal Malaysia police took to Facebook to upload a photograph of a police officer, Jeery Juhari of Kota Tinggi District Police’s response team.
The constable can be seen holding a dog that had been trapped in a flooded area. The post has since garnered at least 6,000 interactions from fellow Facebook users.
According to the post, the Royal Malaysian Police have also taken up the responsibility of evacuating pets and livestock alongside the district’s residents.
A separate China Press report on another flood-stricken district, shows a group of rescue workers hauling a buffalo to safety.
Rescue Workers Praised For Good Work
A handful of netizens were awed by the noble works of the police force and many have taken to the comment section to praise and extend their gratitude towards the officers involved.
Now that’s some awesome news!
Unfortunately, Johor remains one of the more drastically affected areas in Malaysia. The number of displaced persons has risen to over 9,000.
