When a seal emerged from the waters tangled in a thick net, two Maine fishermen were quick to come to the rescue.

The men's heroic efforts were caught on camera and the internet is applauding their good deed.

In the YouTube video, a man is seen straddling the distressed seal as he cuts away the netting. Before the seal was freed, all that was visible was the animal's head surrounded by the net.

After the seal is released from the tangled mess, he receives a few rubs from his rescuers and jumps in the water.

Nice job, guys!
