Being buried outside in the snow is not the type of experience that anyone should ever have to endure. Just imagine how nerve-wracking it would be to find yourself in this sort of predicament. Sadly, the creature in this story found themselves in this exact circumstance. This story took place in Austria, as Austrian Federal Railways workers tried to clear roadways.
While the tracks were being cleared, they noticed an animal that seemed to be waiting off to the side. At first, they thought that the animal was standing up. Before long, they realized the sad truth. This poor creature was actually sinking! The chamois was trapped in the snow but these workers were not about to let this animal go without a fight.
For those who are unaware, the chamois is a cross between the antelope and the goat. Two men decided to leap into action and start the process of digging the creature out. The animal had become buried because a train passed away and covered them up with snow. The train operators tried their best to warn the creature with loud honks.
It was to no avail, though. It took a great deal of time and effort but the men were finally able to dig the chamois out and save the animal from certain death. The exhausted animal was grateful for their hard work. Once the job was done, the chamois got back to his feet. From there, there was nothing left to do but head back to the forest.
The rescue footage has now been uploaded onto Twitter and we are more than happy to share it with the rest of our readers. Stories like these serve as a valuable reminder that there are some great people out there who are willing to help animals that are in need. These workers did everything in their power to save the chamois life.
They deserve to be commended for their efforts. We are sure that the chamois would have bought these men a beer if he had the ability to do so. In the meantime, be sure to share this awesome story with your friends and loved ones as soon as possible.
