This is the moment a helpless mother moose looks on as she ponders how to save her child stuck in the water.
A boat carrying fisherman passed by and spotted the distraught mother and child.
“We spotted a baby moose struggling to get on the land, so we decided it was best to let nature take its course by letting the momma help its young,” wrote the video uploader.
After leaving, they returned an hour later to discover the mother moose had vanished and the baby moose was still in the water.
“An hour later, we went back to see the progress, and the momma was nowhere to be found, but the baby moose was still whimpering and struggling to get on shore,” the filmer added.
“We noticed that the calf was extremely exhausted because the calf started to blow bubbles out of its nose. At that time, we figured it was safe to help.”
The baby moose was uncertain what the humans were going to do as they steered the boat towards it.
The fishermen then leaned over to pick up the shivering calf and get her out of the water.
They then moved to a clearer path of land, where they moved the moose. Initially, it had a hard time standing up.
Eventually, it stood up and turned around to its rescuers before giving the puppy dog eyes and finally going on its own back home.
