Shediac area firefighters who freed a moose from the frozen Shediac River will be honoured.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is sending a Compassionate Fire Department Award to the Shediac Fire Department.
Video was posted of last weekend’s rescue. At first, the moose appeared agitated by the axe-swinging firefighters, but soon calmed down. They managed to smash a path through the ice and the moose got to shore, climbed the riverbank and headed back into the woods.
PETA is sending the fire department a letter of congratulations, a box of vegan cookies and a copy of The Engine 2 Diet, a Texas firefighter’s plant-based eating program.
