It is always fun to go ice-skating when the weather gets cold. It is a great way to exercise while being one with nature. However, frozen lakes can be hazardous, especially if you do not know how to swim.
That is what happened one day on the lake when a moose fell through the ice. The poor animal could not swim and was too large to get out of his predicament.
Rescuers were called and spent two hours trying to rescue the animal. They were equipped with oars, chainsaws, and sledgehammers just to break through the ice. They tried to coax the moose towards the shore. It took awhile, but eventually, the large moose managed to pull itself out and get to safety.
