Taking a moment and looking around us can sometimes saves lives. That’s exactly what happened when Jonathan and his pals were snowmobiling in Newfoundland, Canada.
While enjoying their activity in the middle of the snowy landscape, they spotted a black dot moving under the pile of snow. When they walked closer, they discovered that a desperate animal was struggling to get itself out so they realized they had to step in.
Jonathan and his friends never expected that they would end up in the midst of emergency rescue mission. their fun exciting day turns out to be completely different but in a good way.
They approached carefully to the strange thing, and when they arrived, they were totally dumbfounded by the sight.
An elk was trapped under the snow, tired and weak. It seems that he lost all his energy to get itself out and wasn’t able to fight anymore.
Luckily, Jonathan and his friends are good guys, he wouldn’t leave the hopeless man and turn their backs. They remembered they’re carrying shovels on their snowmobiles in case of emergency. With no time to waste, they immediately started to dig, to save the poor moose.
The snow was heavy and the moose had no chance of getting out on its own. While they worked hard to move all of the snow, the moose lay still and looked as if it knew it was being rescued.
After hard efforts to move away the snow, they could finally see the whole moose. and the animal was able to move freely his body.
After getting up and moving a few steps away, the moose stopped and looked back like it was trying to thank the good men for the help.
Jonathan and his friends were happy they did something good to the animal, watching him walking away to its natural habitat made them feel relieved. they’re now hailed heroes for doing this kind gesture.
Although mesmerized by the beautiful creature, Jonathan said that they kept their distance. Not only because moose can hurt people with their immense size and strength, but they have to respect the wildlife which unfortunately not many people understand this.
“You’re in their home when you’re traveling in the backcountry, so we don’t want to add to that,” Jonathan said.
