Snowboarders Rescue Stranded Horse From Freezing To Death

After the first snowstorm of the season, snowboarder Rafael Pease and his friend set out to ride four-feet of fresh powder in the Chilean Andes. Their snowboard trip quickly turned into a rescue operation when they found a lone horse stuck in snow up to her belly. The duo dug the exhausted horse free, fed her, guided her back down the mountain where she was reunited with her owner. Their entire rescue was captured on a GoPro camera.

Hero Motorcyclist Stops Traffic To Rescue Tiny Kitten Stranded In A Busy Intersection
