From the story on CBC News:
A central Newfoundland man waded into a freezing cold pond last weekend to save two moose calves. Junior Downey was at his cabin at Moccasin Lake, near Grand Falls-Windsor, when he spotted the young moose struggling in the water. “One had its leg caught. So I took him out of it,” said Downey. “The other one was half in the water with her head down, eyes closed, and didn’t even move when I picked her up. I brought them up and put them on the patio deck and dried them off as best I could with two blankets.” Downey said the mother of the pair was not far away and when the two calves recovered they rejoined their mother. Downey, who is also a hunter, told CBC News that the last moose he carried was the one he shot last fall.
