Colorado rescuers save moose trapped in window well

KEYSTONE, Colorado (AP) — Rescuers in Colorado hauled a bull moose to safety after it became trapped in a window well.

Summit Daily reported on Sunday that rescuers first tranquilised the animal on Saturday night before attempting a rescue from the five-foot-deep enclosure at a private home about 124km west of Denver.

Authorities said they erected a pulley system to lift the young male that may have been trying to avoid snowdrifts by walking close to the house. The moose returned to the woods without any injuries.
