Moose rescued from Colorado basement after falling from a window well


Rescuers had to help a moose that fell into a home’s window well and ended up trapped in the house’s basement in Colorado. Colorado Parks and Wildlife says officers responded to a call about how the moose was stuck in the basement of a Breckenridge home on Monday afternoon (January 10th). Officers opened doors for the moose to exit, but couldn’t get the animal to leave because it didn’t want to walk up any stairs. Eventually officers tranquilized the moose and cut off its antlers so it could be carried up the staircase without further damaging the home. The agency noted that moose antlers typically fall off this time of year and would regrow in the spring. The moose was carried outside and released back into the wild.
