Cattle had to be shoveled out of 8 feet of snow in South Dakota

(NBC) Most people in the Northern half of the country know about shoveling snow.

Sometimes you have to dig out your car and sometimes you have to dig out your cattle!

The bull is in snow up to its horns because of a blizzard and it looks like a difficult task to get him out.

In fact, this family in southwest South Dakota spent four hours digging their bulls out of the snow on Thursday.

On Friday, the family went back out to try and find the rest of their cattle.

Dale Jessie Vocu who shot the video says it is an example of the "loving side" of ranching.

Thankfully the area doesn't expect more snow over the next few days.
