Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Firefighters in South Dakota were called to a crash site to help free at least 39 bison from an overturned tractor-trailer.

The Pierre Fire Department tweeted a video showing firefighters helping bison run out from the overturned trailer.

Firefighters said they cut through the trailer to give the bison a route to escape into the adjacent field.

The department said there were no human injuries from the crash, but one bison died from its injuries.
