Skip to comments.Exhausted moose gets help from deputy in northern Minnesota

Sgt. Bernie Mettler has responded to a lot of calls in his 21 years as a St. Louis County sheriff's deputy, but until this week, never a moose rescue. Mettler was called to the north side of Aurora on Monday morning after reports from residents that a moose was on the loose and apparently unable to find its way back into the woods. "It looked like it came into the north side of town from the east ... and then got trapped,'' Mettler said. "There's a tall fence there that keeps people out of the old mine dumps and mine pits to the north, and it couldn't figure out how to get around the fence." Much of the drama unfolded only 150 yards from the Aurora school playground, and the deputy was concerned the moose might wander deeper into town, where it could collide with a vehicle or person. Mettler received "backup" from Deputy Heather Schendel, armed with a digital camera, and Hoyt Lakes police officer Mark Wippler, armed with a video recorder. They documented the incident for posterity, but the officers couldn't persuade the moose to head back east.

That’s sooooo 90’s.
I am glad nobody’s sister got bitten in this unfortunate incident.
Or else the deputy would have to get sacked.
I’m going to eat some cheese.
What variety? Brie? Camembert? Stilton? Gouda, Edam, Muenster?
Have you any Cheddar? It’s the single most popular cheese in the world!

At first I thought this was going to be a “feel good” story about Michael Moore to fill space on a slow news day, but then it occurred to me that the headline editors would have been required to write about an “exhausted pig” rather than an “exhausted moose”.
A tragedy averted. Think what would happen to hunting if all moose self-delivered themselves to town.
Fortunately, in Canada we know how to treat exhausted meese.
