Moose were not an unusual sight to the driver; the calf he had spotted, however, was acting more oddly than usual. Then he realized what was going on: the baby was trapped in a wire fence. If he didn’t act quickly, then, the calf would surely die. On the other hand, though, if he attempted to help, who knew what the animal’s worried mother would do?

The driver in question is called Joel_Congo on Newsflare, and he’s a man from Canada who has gone on to achieve viral fame. That exposure, moreover, came as a result of a video that was shot on May 1, 2017; on that day, Congo was traveling in the vicinity of Edmonton when he noticed something troubling.

More specifically, it was a struggling shape on the side of the road that caught his eye. Congo subsequently realized that the creature was in fact a moose calf, and it was in some distress. That’s because the animal had caught its leg in some barbed wire, tangling its limb like a snare as a result.
