Nevertheless, the men sprung into action, grabbing a hatchet and tearing apart the gate of their own fence to get the baby moose free. Frequently encounters between humans and moose are tense because moose are territorial creatures, prone to charging. But this baby moose, perhaps owing to its age, seems almost reluctant to go once freed. Almost as if it is saying thanks.
The man who freed the animal said that he noticed the moose had "the biggest brown eyes I had ever seen," and speculates that it had tried to jump the gate but hadn't achieved the necessary height, it's front paws falling in between the slats of the gate.
