The moose had entered the home and made its way to a basement bedroom where it unloaded a lot of scat and find a cozy spot on the carpet to snooze, according to wildlife officials.
“We were called in to take the lead on getting this trespasser out of the basement and into more suitable – though maybe a bit less comfortable – habitat,” wildlife officials said.
Wildlife officers, Breckenridge police and Red, White & Blue Fire District firefighters put their heads together to develop a plan to get the large moose out of the basement.
