"An awesome example of how our earth is not as stable as you might think."

Randy Becker was hunting game in the Bighorn Mountains of northern Wyoming last weekend when he came across a huge "crack in the earth."

The gashes in the earth he discovered are estimated to be about 750 yards long and 50 yards wide, Mother Nature Network reported.

"We came across an awesome example of how our earth is not as stable as you might think. Awesome forces at work here to move this much dirt!!" Becker wrote in a Facebook post Monday.

"An engineer from Riverton, WY came out to shed a little light on this giant crack in the earth. Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a cap rock. Then, a small spring on either side caused the bottom to slide out. He estimated 15 to 20 million yards of movement. By range finder, an estimate is 750 yards long and about 50 yards wide."

The group SNS Outfitter and Guides posted another picture on its Facebook page, pointing out the "incredible sight."

This giant crack in the earth appeared in the last two weeks on a ranch we hunt in the Bighorn Mountains. Everyone here is calling it “the gash”. It’s a really incredible sight.Huntwyo.com
