Logan Snyder might not consider himself to be a hero, but there is no better word to describe him.
While out for a boat ride on a river near his home, the Wasilla, Alaska native spotted a furry brown mound cresting the water ahead of him. At first, Snyder thought it was just one of the many beavers living there, but he soon learned there was much more beneath the surface.
"As I got closer, it didn't dive, which is what a beaver always does. So I idled my boat and started looking at it, and I was like 'What the heck?'" Snyder told The Dodo. "Every once in a while I could see an ear come up, and I thought 'That's a moose calf!'"
