moose freed from fence

When a Canadian homeowner saw two hooves sticking out of his fence he swiftly moved into action to save the baby moose. He was on a mission to free the petrified little fellow from the planks of wood that held him hostage.

Diligently chopping away at the planks, he was finally able to free the young moose. This is when the man got the treat of his life. Instead, of instantly running away, the moose remained near the fence, gazing with a look of wonderment at his hero. It was as if the moose wanted to say thank you, but could not find the right words. (That, or the little guy was sore from his ordeal, but we like to think the former.)

The man at first thought the moose may have been caught in the fence for a long period of time before being discovered and possibly hungry, but apparently he was told this was not the case. The moose only got caught a few minutes before his rescuer arrived on the scene.

We’re just thankful that the moose was found by kindhearted people who opted to save him rather than hurt him.

    I don’t know much about moose behavior, but licking and chewing like he does afterward they free him, is a sign of trust when equines do it.

    Poor guy. Life is not easy for animals…I hope he made it back to his family and is okay. Good job, humans.
