A much needed feel-good story out of western Newfoundland as some snowmobilers save a moose that had fallen into a tree well. I guess tree wells are a danger to not just skiers.
While riding in the Taylor’s Brook Road area of western Newfoundland, we noticed a group of three moose traveling across the edge of a pond. A couple of us stopped to watch them from a distance and saw that one appeared to fall out of sight. Once the other two had traveled on, we approached the area to see what had happened and found that it had fallen into a tree well. Knowing that the animal would surely perish if nothing was done, we decided to do our best to give it a fighting chance and try to dig it out.
