Russian folks save a moose that fell in the water

51-year-old helicopter pilot Victor Zavalypich was flying over the resort at Lake Arantur 30 kilometers from Yugorsk, when he noticed a dark spot on the ice.

Going down below, he realized that he's looking at moose that fell in the freezing water. to their surprise the animal ever so lightly turned its head toward them. the female moose looked frozen and exhausted, as they estimated it was already in the water for a few hours.

An adult moose weighs about 600 pounds, and, standing on the fragile ice, it instantly collapsed. To keep her from dying, Zavalypich went to the helicopter pad for additional help, ropes, ties and belts.

They later returned to the scene. the pilot and his three passangers struggled to get the half a ton animal out of the water. The operation lasted about one and a half hours.

Victor and his friends tried to warm up the moose, rubbing and strethcing it
