Goat gets stuck in snow

The Star (Jamaica) - - News The Weekend Star -

Aus­trian train work­ers shut down their track­clear­ing op­er­a­tions to res­cue a moun­tain goat after see­ing it get buried in a del­uge of snow they had been clear­ing from the rails.

Aus­trian news agency APA re­ported on Wed­nes­day that two work­ers leapt out of the train and shov­elled through the snow to reach the chamois, a type of goat-an­te­lope. The an­i­mal was stuck in a snow­drift at the side of tracks in the

Ge­saeuse na­tional park in cen­tral

Aus­tria.

They say the an­i­mal seemed trans­fixed by the on­com­ing train and didn’t move away from the side of the tracks de­spite per­sis­tent honk­ing.

After the chamois was freed, it loped away through the deep snow into a for­est.

Aus­trian Rail­way OEBB re­leased a video of the res­cue, which quickly got thou­sands of views.
