Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a release that officials alongside the Estes Park Police Department responded when a bull moose got stuck at the intersection of Highway 7 and Highway 36 near Estes Park, with about 30 feet of fence tangled in his antlers.

20 September (News) — Wildlife officers in Colorado rescued a bull moose that became tangled in a fence and stranded in the middle of a busy intersection.

The moose was stunned so officers could remove the fence and move the animal to a more appropriate location for release.

“We were grateful for the opportunity to free the moose from the fencing on its antlers and away from the dangerous crossing. We would also like to thank the local residents who reported this to us immediately so that we could respond quickly and free the moose without serious injury,” said Clayton Brossart, CPW District Wildlife Director, in the release .
