Home video of the Nizolek family rescuing a cow elk that was stuck in a hole full of icy water. Sam Nizolek helped rescue the elk. He was on leave from Iraq. The audio on this footage was altered by Penny Preston for the family, and her television story. The cursing is bleeped out. The family later sold the footage and the story to Animal Planet for national broadcast. The men put a rope around the elk's neck, and pulled her out of the water, then she jumped in again. They tried to pull her out again, and could not pull her over the lip of the ice. So, they chopped away some ice, and pulled her out the final time. She ran away unharmed
