Feel the Intense Stickyness in This Utah Moose Mud Rescue

cow moose

This cow moose found herself in a muddy situation. Luckily, Utah’s finest came to save the day.

How do you get a stuck moose out of the mud? For these Utah officers, a whole lot of grunt work, some rope, and sheer determination. And because of their hard work, it very likely saved this cow’s life.

Judging from this video, it would have been a real struggle for this cow moose to get herself unstuck. She’s pretty bogged down in the “brown glue,” almost up to her neck.

Here’s the video:

This unlucky moose was found along Highway 150 near Whitney Reservoir in Utah. But thanks to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and Summit Biologist Dave Rich, Officer Wesley Selby and Sgt. Kinghorn, she lived to see another day.

Thank an officer next time you see one. They do a lot behind the scenes that is seldom noticed, but is very much appreciated.
