The moose was sedated and untangled from the net, CPW said.

"Officers stood by helping the moose stay upright to aid in breathing while the effects of the drugs used to sedate him wore off," the tweet said.

A follow-up tweet included a video of the moose returning to the wild.

"The young bull moose was able to stand up and walk away," the post said.
