Moose calf rescued from drowning by Calgary kayakers in dramatic video

A female moose calf is lucky to be alive after a dramatic rescue on the Sheep River, just outside of Calgary.

Off-duty Calgary firefighter Scott Linton was kayaking with his friend Benny Clark — who paddles for a living — when they spotted something in the water, clearly in distress.

“Benny says, ‘Moose,’ and I didn’t see it (at first)… and we startled her, and she got up and fell into the river,” Linton said.

The two experienced kayakers did not hesitate to jump into action and quickly hopped out of their boats.

And it was all caught on video.

Calgary mayor says anti-mask rallies are "thinly veiled white nationalist" protests

Alberta is the country’s COVID-19 hot spot. It has the highest rate of active cases in Canada and the United States.

The province has increased restrictions including limiting outdoor gatherings to five people, moving students to online learning and increasing fines for people who break the rules. Despite that, anti-lockdown protests continue.

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says some recent rallies billed as opposing the wearing of masks during the pandemic are really just “thinly veiled white nationalist” and “anti-government” activities.

In an interview with Abigail Bimman, Nenshi expressed his frustration with the fact that people refusing to wear masks and gathering in large crowds are endangering others.
