Just as a family in Colorado, United States thought that someone had invaded their home, it turned out to be not human, because it was a moose.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife shared that the agency and the local Breckenridge Police have been called up last Friday, March 15, by an unidentified family, reporting an intrusion, as seen in the wildlife organization’s Twitter page last week.
In the video, it can be seen that a trail of mess was left by the cow moose before it simply sat on a bed.
The organization’s officers, with the help of local police and the Red, White and Blue Fire District, then tranquilized the moose.
“She was moved from the basement through a tight stairwell and taken to a waiting trailer, where the tranquilizer was successfully reversed,” CO Parks & Wildlife stated.

The moose will be transferred to a prime moose habitat. The organization also added a reminder that covering windows are a “great way to keep unexpected visitors away from (or out of) your home,” which may be a hints as to how the animal got inside the home in the first place.
After getting a quick glimpse of how the humans live, this moose will now be relocated to prime moose habitat in Grand County. Window well covers are a great way to keep unexpected visitors away from (or out of) your home! Learn more at https://t.co/yA6zZOqP4Rpic.twitter.com/EfIBPae4ew
Animals typically become unlikely visitors in a family’s home, depending on location. A mountain lion surprised a family in California with his presence last February, while they were doing the laundry. JB
