Moose Calf Trapped In Barbed Wire Rescued | Wild-ish TV

A kindhearted pair rescued a moose calf trapped in barbed wire at the side of a road while its grateful mother watched on. Sandy Irwin and friend Lee Cockrum were driving near Sandy's home, in Dorintosh, Saskatchewan, when she spotted the mother and calf cross the road 80 yards in front of them. As the pair got closer, Sandy noticed the mother moose had jumped a fence, but the calf had immediately become tangled, flipping on its back and trapping a leg. Determined to help, Sandy and Lee hopped from their vehicle and headed straight for the helpless calf. With Lee being a rancher, the pair knew the potential dangers of interfering with a calf while its protective mother was present, but given how tangled it was, they knew they needed to help. The calf's leg was tightly wrapped within the wire of the fence, and so Lee pried the fencing apart while Sandy freed the leg and pulled its head out from underneath it. Then, with a little nudge from Lee, the calf knew it was free and headed straight to its onlooking mother.
