Brave Bruce the Yak Saved From Icy Doom By Heroic Farmhands

Bruce the yak is a 3-year-old yak from Boonton, NJ who fell through the ice into a duck pond on Wednesday. Tina Krawczyk, manager of Brookhollow's Barnyard (where Bruce lives), noticed his horns sticking up amongst the ducks.

"Bruce had fallen in the water" Krawczyk told NJ.com, "and probably had been there for quite some time."

As she prepared to go out onto the ice to assist Bruce, she attempted to text her boyfriend the words "yak help," but they were autocorrected to "tax help."

Eventually, with the aid of her much-delayed boyfriend, Krawczyk was able to wrestle Bruce out of the water and onto shore.

Bruce is pictured above, wearing a blanket. He is OK.
