March 11 (UPI) -- Emergency responders in Colorado responded to a home to rescue a moose that fell into a 5-foot-deep window well.

Wildlife officers tranquilized the animal and Summit's Truck 11 crew set up a pulley system to hoist the estimated 800 to 1,000-pound moose back to solid ground.

The moose did not appear to be injured when it was revived and the window was not damaged, firefighters said.
