1. Man saves elk buried by an avalanche with just its nostril & eye peeking out – Jesse Dahlberg noticed the elk in the path of a controlled avalanche in Field, British Columbia & watched as it was engulfed in snow. He drove over to help & luckily found it half peering out, but stuck under the weight of the snow. Dahlberg & a friend used their hands & a shovel, & 15 minutes later had freed it. The elk stayed around instead of fleeing, almost as if it was saying a thank you.
