One Idaho family had quite the wild Sunday morning as they walked into their basement to find a massive moose starring right at them.
The female animal had fallen into a 3-foot deep window well and made her way into the home, according to Lt. Steve England of the Hailey Police Department.
“The window opened like a door and the latch was loose,” England tells EastIdahoNews.com. “The moose pushed her way through and, amazingly enough, the window didn’t even break.”
A family member called the Hailey Police Department and officers, along with Blaine County Sheriff deputies and Idaho Fish and Game officers, went to the home.
“They put some furniture and mattresses around the room to kind of keep the moose enclosed in one area of the basement,” England says. “Fortunately she wasn’t hurt and remained pretty calm.”
By the time Fish and Game officers arrived, the moose had been in the basement nearly two hours. The animal was tranquilized and then all of the officers helped carry it up the stairs and out the front door.
Luckily the moose only created minimal damage to the home…but it surely provided a lifetime of memories!
