Moose calf rescued from drowning by Calgary kayakers in dramatic video

CA, 08 Jun 2021
A female moose calf is lucky to be alive after a dramatic rescue on the Sheep River, just outside of Calgary.

Off-duty Calgary firefighter Scott Linton was kayaking with his friend Benny Clark — who paddles for a living — when they spotted something in the water, clearly in distress.

“Benny says, ‘Moose,’ and I didn’t see it (at first)… and we startled her, and she got up and fell into the river,” Linton said.

The two experienced kayakers did not hesitate to jump into action and quickly hopped out of their boats.

And it was all caught on video.
