DEER LAKE, N.L. - A group of snowmobilers pulled out their shovels to free a stuck moose after spotting its head sticking out of freshly fallen snow in western Newfoundland.

Jonathan Anstey, who owns a snowmobile riding clinic, says he and about seven other riders were on trails near Deer Lake, N.L., on Saturday when they spotted the neck-deep moose amid the white expanse.

Anstey says the moose appeared to have gotten stuck in a bog hole and was thrashing around after being buried in about six feet, or 1.8 metres, of snow.

He says his group used shovels to clear the snow around the moose, and after a few minutes of digging, the animal emerged from the hole and looked at them as if to say "thank you" before trotting off.

A moose is running free again thanks to a group of Canadian snowmobilers who found it buried and helpless in the snow . Adult male moose , while built for the cold, can sometimes become trapped in particularly deep snow and have trouble escaping due to their massive size.

He says it isn't uncommon for adventurers to come across moose in sticky situations while exploring Newfoundland's back-country, but he would advise them to contact provincial officials rather than taking matters into their own hands.

Anstey says it's the second time he has tried to rescue a moose, but he doesn't consider himself a moose rescuer so much as a snowmobiler doing his duty to protect local wildlife.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version wrongly said the snowmobilers spotted antlers in the snow. The moose had no antlers.
