A moose crashed through a window into a Breckenridge homeowner’s basement Friday morning, causing initial alarm about a possible home invasion but resolving with the safe removal and release of the moose back into its more appropriate abode in the wild.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife suspect the large cow moose was wandering in deep snow outside the home when she fell into a window well and crashed through a basement window. The residents inside, suspecting a home invasion, called 911. When officers arrived, they found the moose sitting comfortably in an interior basement room.

Breckenridge Police and Red, White and Blue firefighters teamed up to tranquilize the moose and carry it up the narrow stairwell to a waiting trailer outside. CPW reports that the loose moose had been safely relocated to a wild location out in Grand County.
