Avalanche Moose rescue by AveryVucinich

A moose caught in an avalanche in Alaska has three passing men on snow machines to thank for surviving into the new year.

The men spotted what looked like a nose sticking up out of the snow field, and dug out the moose apparently unharmed.  It was trapped in the area of Hatcher Pass on Dec. 28, and one of the men, Marty Mobley, said that without the group’s help, it would not have survived.
