An elk trapped in a frozen pond in Bend, Oregon is running free again thanks to the help of rescuers.
Police were called to the Awbrey Glen Golf Course yesterday morning after calls came in about an elk falling through the ice and became trapped in the pond.
Bend police officers eventually used a boat and tried to help move the elk toward land as it struggled in the icy water. After wrapping a rope around the elk's neck, they pulled the animal to safety.
The elk still struggled to keep its balance once out of the water but eventually ran back into the woods.
