Baby moose falls through Wash. family's window

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Spokane family got an uninvited visitor
when a moose calf fell through a basement window and into a
bedroom.
The Spokesman Review reports that the baby moose was apparently
foraging in shallow snow near the house Thursday when it fell into
a deep window well. As it tried to get out and join its mother and
sibling, the moose kicked in the window and became trapped in the
bedroom.
A state wildlife biologist managed to shoot a tranquilizer dart
into the moose's rump. Then he and four others used a tarp to haul
the 375-pound baby up a narrow stairway.
Wildlife officers tracked down the calf's mother and sibling and
trucked the reunited family to a spot near Mount Spokane and
released them.
