A dozen elk were rescued from a frozen reservoir on Friday morning thanks to some compassionate pedestrians who weren’t afraid to lend a hand.

Roughly 25 Wyoming residents came together to assist a herd of elk that had fallen into the Palisades Reservoir near Jackson Hole.

“Luckily, the elk fell in 20 yards from the shoreline which allowed us to open up a path in the ice back to shore,” stated the Wyoming Game And Fish Department in a Facebook post.

In a video posted to social media by Dustin Jones, however, a few people can be seen manually pulling the last two elk out of the water and onto the solid ice.

“What an amazing start to this day! All elk survived. Great to see the community come together and help these animals,” Jones wrote in a Facebook post.
