God bless those three heroic men - their improvised massage to get her blood flowing again was wonderful - moose must be VERY robust to have survived like that! I do hope that Manka the Moose does well and has a healthy baby/babies in the Spring and that the blue collar preserves her from hunters.

That is a "feel good" story. Some times people can do good things. I have to wonder why the ice was so thin this time of year in that part of the world. Ummm.....

I'm hoping they only left the tie on so they could easily locate her later on. I hope they plan to remove it when they know if her calf lived.

Thank you, Ken, for sharing this beautiful video.

What a beautiful story Kenneth. People doing good things for wild creatures. Pretty darn nice.
Oh and Kit, ice that forms in marshy areas near springs remains thin even at -40 degrees. It is called angel ice. I know it well having fallen through it myself once.

Thanks Gysele and Mariann and Ellen and everyone else. And Craig that must have been awful...
This moose was in the water for 20 hours so they certainly are built more durable than humans but even they can eventually succumb. First thing the baby will say when born is "Hey, it was freezing in here for a while!"
Yes, these guys, especially the pilot, epitomize kindness.

Btw, this shows that humans CAN and DO help other species when no other species helps their own or another. Would or could another moose come along and help this moose out of the water? Or help one of their own or another species that was injured somewhere? Sometimes but rarely. So we harm immeasurably but also can help greatly too.

There are many stories I feel that reveal this tenderness and sensitivity to our connection with animals...we just don't get to hear many of them with the deluge of sorrow and pain that is at the forefront of modern news......... There are many, way more than you or I will ever hear of that are ready, willing and able to do their part as well.... We have these wondrous kindred spirits all across the earth..... .......... Perhaps even across the whole universe..!! Thanks Mr K for this heartwarming story......

Gysele, 600 kg is 1320 pounds (1 kg = 2.2 lb)

What a great heartwarming story Kenneth. I like the hat the one fellow has on --- perhaps has been here or has relatives in Canada.

I wish there was a medal to give these guys. I can't believe they managed to haul her out!! That's a lot of wet weight! You can tell how long it took her to thaw by how long it took for the shivering to start. I don't think she could have held on much longer. Thanks for making me smile Kenneth!!
