Moose safely rescued

RESCUERS in Colorado hauled a bull moose to safety after it became trapped in a window well.

Summit Daily reported recently that rescuers first tranquilized the animal before attempting a rescue from a 1.5-meter-deep enclosure at a private home about 124km west of Denver. Authorities say they erected a pulley system to lift the young male weighing between 363 and 454 kilograms that may have been trying to avoid snowdrifts by walking close to the house.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife personnel, local fire and emergency services and Keystone ski resort employees assisted in the rescue. A parks spokesman says the operation took nearly six hours.
