Watch Two Brave Hunters Rescuing an Elk from a Deep Mud Pit

Next time somebody tries bashing hunters for being “heartless” or “insensitive” pull up this video showing two brave hunters rescuing an elk from a mud pit.

The two hunters were evidently bowhunting in Alberta, Canada when they came across a young bull elk in a pretty serious situation.
