An elk named Shooter rescued a marmot from drowning in his water trough at Pocatello Zoo in Idaho.
At first the elk appeared to be dipping his face and nose in to the trough in an unusual way. Zoo staff at Pocatello Zoo weren’t too concerned but did find the behaviour strange.
Then Shooter he tried to dunk his head in the trough and keepers wondered what was wrong. His antlers were too big to fit in the trough and he had to work out what to do next.
So Shooter started dipping his paws in, a seemingly bizarre action, but it turned out to have been part of a scheme to get a drowning marmot in to the middle of the trough so that he could get hold of it.
And here we see Shooter gently taking the dripping rodent out of the trough.
Shooter gently placed the marmot down, wet and bedraggled but happy to be out of the water.
