Russians Save 600-Pound Submerged Moose From an Icy Death SHARE: Tweet How much does an adult moose weigh? Enough to break the ice! Victor Zavalypich, a 51-year old helicopter pilot, spotted a dark patch in the ice as he flew above a Russian lake. Upon further inspection, Zavalypich noticed it was a female moose that had fallen through the ice. She appeared to have been in the freezing water for a few hours. Zavalypich quickly flew back to retrieve additional help, as well as ropes and ties. An hour and half later, the 600-pound beast was freed from the icy waters and revived, thanks to a little heat and stretching from the men. They even went so far as to name her Manka, tying a blue ribbon to identify her: “Who knows, perhaps one day we’ll meet again.” Follow Us SEE MORE: • Meet IKEA Monkey’s Less Fashionable But Still Cute Russian Cousin • 430-Pound Catfish Caught by Giggly Group of Russians [Live Leak] MOST RECENT BY Greg Seals:How Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un Prepares North Korea for War One Family's Entire Season Worth of Football Meltdowns in 5 MinutesCheeky British Lad Gets Friends Face Tattooed On His Entire Ass Cheek Greg Seals Greg Seals is a writer, and sometimes funny person.
