Chewbacca the Newborn Calf Rescued from Thin Ice

YouTube Link

A three-day-old calf named Chewbacca got an early lesson in the dangers of winter when he slipped in between the planks of a wooden fence and escaped from his enclosure, later stranding himself on a pond covered with thin ice. But Chewbacca, a resident of Hope, Indiana, was saved by the quick action of his owner Kevin Mahoney, who enlisted the help of his local police department when the rope with which he first tried to rescue the calf was too short.

After the police arrived with a rope long enough to pull the calf to safety, Chewbacca's anxious mama made the adorable move of jumping over a barrier to get her to her baby. She had waited long enough to warm and comfort the little calf, and took the tail end of the rescue into her own hooves. Via Arbroath
