“Disturbing video of a bull moose with its antlers caught on a backyard swing is a prime example of the hazards of attracting wildlife to a residential area,” said Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials in a press release Tuesday after a resident of Summit County, Colorado admitted to using a salt lick to attract moose for wildlife viewing.In video of the incident, an agitated bull moose can be seen struggling to escape the ropes of the swing set. The animal was so stressed that wildlife officers needed to utilize a taser to immobilize the animal long enough to cut it free.“It was a difficult and dangerous situation but the taser worked exactly as we had hoped," said District Wildlife Manager Tom Davies. "Tranquilization drugs were an option but considering how stressed the moose became during this precarious situation, it would have likely killed the animal. The taser is proving to be very useful for a situation like this."Baiting animals is illegal and unethical and can have dire consequences for a stressed animal, Colorado officials said.For information on living responsibly with wildlife in Alaska, visit the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s website.
