Alberta cattle rancher Brad Osadczuk experienced the most bizarre moment of his career when he found his missing newborn calf in a badger hole Friday night.

The animal was missing for a day, and when the hours dragged on without a sign of him on the large native prairie pastures of Jenner, Alta., Osadczuk grew concerned.

He spent an hour driving around his 640-acre ranch, looking through every clump of grass for the calf.

At around 8 p.m., Osadczuk stumbled across him with his mother nearby.

"I knew from experience that he wouldn't leave that area and she was trying to tell us something," the 47-year-old rancher said Saturday.

Cambridge Bay parents shaken after boy gets stuck in deep ice crevice

Cambridge Bay parents shaken after boy gets stuck in deep ice crevice The chair of the Cambridge Bay Childcare Society plans to improve its rules about field trips after a preschooler got stuck nearly 2 metres down a crevice in the ice on Monday. Ann Balasubramaniam, chair of the Cambridge Bay Childcare Society, says when a chaperone realized the young boy wasn't in sight during a trip to the west arm of the bay — a popular spot for tobogganing — they thought he might be hiding in the bus or behind a snowbank. But they called RCMP in case it was something more serious. And it was.

An Alberta , Canada, rancher rescued a missing calf that had slipped into a badger hole in one his pastures. “After I got him out , [the calf ’s mom] came right up and was taking care of him,” Osadczuk said. “We were quite amazed in all the years that we’ve been ranching , and friends and family have

"She kept on going back to this spot. When you walk up, you couldn't see anything. It just was prairie grass. I happened to walk up to a badger hole and I look down, and about 12 inches down into the hole, I could see his nose down there," Osadczuk added.

"So I kind of had to dig around to get ahold of his front legs and I pulled him out of there. He was quite stuck. He wiggled and screamed enough until he kind of worked himself as far down as he possibly could into this big badger hole."

The calf was wedged in so tightly that Osadczuk thought something more sinister was at play.

"I was wondering how he got so far down there and if something was trying to drag him down there, whether it was a coyote or a badger or something," he said.

Osadczuk said the animal is doing well, just exhausted after being stuck in the hole for 12 to 20 hours.

"After I got him out, [the calf's mom] came right up and was taking care of him," he said.

Osadczuk called it the weirdest thing he's ever come across in his lifelong career.

"We were quite amazed in all the years that we've been ranching, and friends and family have been ranching, no one's ever seen anything quite that crazy," he said.

A special bond: Pit bull and blind calf forge friendship at Alberta animal rescue.
A blind calf has found an unlikely friend in a pit bull rescued from the fighting ring. Heaven, a two-month-old calf, and Sweetpea the dog are the best of pals. They can often be found side-by-side, roaming the grounds of the Saving Grace Animal Society in Alix, Alta. "They took to each other and immediately bonded," said Erin Deems, the animal rescue's executive director. "Love knows no species boundaries. When two animals can bond like that, it's pretty heartwarming." The inseparable pair play, sniff and even kiss. "They really love to sunbathe," Deems said.
