This is the heartwarming moment when two fishermen lent a helping hand to a moose calf struggling to come to shore after it fell into a lake in Canada. Footage, shot in May 17, 2015 on a lake near Field, Ontario, shows one of the men approaching on their boat and grabbing the hapless moose to help it back onto the shore. These fishermen were fishing when they heard a whimpering sound and started looking around where the noise was coming from. Then, they spotted a baby moose struggling to get to land, but they decided to let nature take its course by letting its momma help her young. They moved to the other bay in order to give brave momma some space to do her job.

Fortunately, an hour later, they came back to see the progress, but the momma was nowhere to be found. Poor baby moose was still whimpering and struggling to get on shore. The moose calf seemed worried and kept pacing back and forth on the shoreline. The kind men decided to pull up closer and get a better view. They noticed that the calf was extremely exhausted because it started blowing bubbles out of its nose. At that time they figured it was safe to help, and it was about time! They quickly proceeded to the shoreline and pulled the calf into their boat and got it back to the shoreline. At first, the exhausted calf was struggling to stand on its own, but was obviously relieved and thankful. It is good that these Good Samaritans decided to go back and check on the calf, but in our opinion they should have lent that helping hand an hour earlier and save this poor calf from the struggle!

In the world of animals, there are so many striking and unique animals with vibrant colors and amazing characteristics that leave us mesmerized. Nature is truly something incredible and we can’t never get bored looking at her miracles all day long. When it comes to moose, we can say that there are many videos where people witness a rare sighting of white moose. Despite the animal's all-white appearance, its coloring does not result from albinism, a congenital condition that results in a loss of pigmentation. Albinism is an inherited disorder usually caused by a lack of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of the skin, hair and eyes.

A rare, white moose was spotted taking a dip in a pool in Sweden’s Varmland County. It seems that there are only 50 white moose in this area making it all the more rare! Talk about cool! Who would have ever thought that moose can be white like this? They almost look like something out of fantasy or even science fiction! It just goes to show you that nature is truly beautiful. Sometimes you just have to take a step out of the digital world and embrace the animals and environment around you for what it is!

Don’t forget to share your breathtaking stories. We are eager to see some more wonders of nature.
