Professional skier Peter Oswald expected to have a normal day when he travelled to New Zealand’s Hector Mountains for a photo shoot. Or at least as normal of a day one can have where someone takes pictures of you flying down a mountain on two thin planks.
He would not, in fact, have a normal day. He didn’t think much of the falling chunk of snow he saw sliding down the mountain until he noticed something different about the plunging powder: it was a sheep.
When the poor thing finished tumbling, Oswald picked all 88 lbs. of it up and decided he needed to take it somewhere to get care. Luckily for the sheep, Oswald is a good enough skier to bring the two of them down the dangerous mountain without any spills. The sheep was able to get the medical attention it needed at the bottom of the slope and Oswald was able to look at the awesome pictures of the rescue captured by the photographer, Dan Power.

Talk about a baaaaahd day for that poor sheep. Nicely done, Peter and Dan!
