Video: Hunters Save Tangled-Up Pronghorn in Utah

Elk hunters lend a helping hand to a pronghorn in need. 

Getting tangled in a wire fence often ends in a life-and-death struggle for wildlife. Without a helping hand, breaking free from the confines of barbs and metal can be a losing battle.

Things were looking dire for this tangled-up pronghorn, that is, until a pair of hunters on their way back from chasing elk in Utah's Uinta Mountains happened upon the scene. 

Donald Bearce and his son Josh Coleman Bearce jumped in to lend a hand, ultimately saving this pronghorn.

Turn up your speakers to hear some seldom-heard pronghorn vocalizations.
