Man Tasers Moose To Free It From Ropes

A wildlife official was called to the house of a Summit County, Colo., resident after a bull moose became entangled in a swing. Officials eventually used a taser to immobilize the moose before cutting the rope and freeing the large animal.

Colorado Park and Wildlife released the video as a warning to not use food or attractants to lure animals near homes.

“Recorded at the home of a Summit County resident who admitted to using salt to attract the animal, the footage shows the angry bull moose struggling with the swing’s rope wrapped around its antlers while wildlife officers attempt to free it. After several difficult hours in its predicament, CPW officers were able to subdue the moose long enough to cut the rope. Appearing relatively unharmed although significantly stressed from its ordeal, the moose first charged its rescuers before running off.
