SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Summit County firefighters came to the rescue of a moose in Keystone. They say they had some help from Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers Saturday night.
The moose fell five feet into a home’s window well. Wildlife officers had to tranquilize the young bull in order to put a harness on him.
They then used a pulley system to pull the estimated 800-1,000 pound animal out.
The moose was then given another drug to wake him up.
No one was hurt, human or moose. And officials say no windows were broken.
Heavy snow is pushing moose closer to shoveled driveways and roads in the area. Over the weekend a pair of moose were spotted on the groomed runs at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
