Breckenridge Window Well Rescue
A moose calf weighing almost 75 lbs found himself in a predicament and he was stuck. Homeowners heard noise outside their Breckenridge, Colorado home Saturday around 2 am, they chose not to investigate in case it was a bear. The next morning they discovered a moose calf stuck in their 3 foot deep window well. The Summit County Sheriff's Office was called for help. The homeowners warned the officers that the moose mother had shown aggression previously in the week. The rescuers could hear the moose calf's family in the woods, both parents and a twin were waiting for the calf.
First attempt to get the calf out did not work, the ramp placed in there was too slippery and the moose was too scared. What rescuers had to do was use a thick webbing strap to lift the moose calf from the window well. The calf then ran off to his family. From KDVR.com.
