Austria: Skiers Rescue Stag Trapped in Snow

A dramatic video has emerged online of skiers rescuing a deer which fell into a snow hole in Obertilliach, Austria.

The three professional skiers found the wild stag trapped in deep snow and attached a rope to the animal’s antlers to try to haul it to safety.

After an hour and a half of pulling and digging, the skiers finally managed to free the stag which ran off without injury. (via Telegraph)

Austria: This Alpine House Looks Like it was Beamed Down From Outer Space

Sure, the larch wood cladding gives Ufogel a kind of rustic charm, but I’ll be damned if this Austrian guest house doesn’t really look like it just beamed down from a quaint corner of outer space.

Architect Peter Jungmann designed the cozy 484 square feet pod with a massive, angular window on one side—perfect to take in the view of the surrounding mountains or, you know, keep watch for the rest of the alien race to pop down from above and join you on the bucolic hillside. (via Gizmodo and Ufogel)

Ed note: the pictures of the interior at the Ufogel site are equally impressive.
