Alcohol saves the day for pregnant horse

Russian emergency workers are apt to use unconventional techniques to save not only people, but animals as well. Rescuing a pregnant horse from a well near Kursk, they had to give it alcohol to prevent it from freezing.

The mare was pulling a sleigh, and did not notice the well, as it was concealed by snow.

It took rescuers three hours to pull the animal out, using a crane and special belts.

In bitterly cold minus 30 degrees Celsius, they warmed the horse up by giving her pure alcohol – which immediately brought the mare to her senses.
