In the News: Bullwinkle Breaks the IceFebruary 10, 2017
Moose can weigh upwards of 1,000 pounds so when one saunters out onto thin ice, you know what’s going to happen. For one moose, it fell through ice and struggled as it tried to make its way out of the water. Luckily for him (or her, we’re no moose expert), a Swedish couple skated their way over and spent half an hour breaking the ice and coaxing the moose to shore.
The rescue, which was captured on video, made us smile.
