Rescuing a Calf Trapped by a Snowstorm

Occurred on April 5, 2023 / Sundance, Wyoming, USA

Info from Licensor: "I am a 24-year-old woman in Wyoming helping my dad run our black angus cattle ranch, which was established in 1880. Our calving season starts April 1st and on April 4th, with many newborn baby calves on the ground, we had a spring snowstorm. As part of my routine, I check all of the mothers and babies twice daily. After the storm, I noticed one of the calf shelters was covered in a hard snowdrift. I looked inside and found a hungry baby calf! I had to rescue the trapped calf with my shovel and load the 95lb baby into the back of the truck. We reunited the baby with its herd and the mother. The calf is doing well!"
