They say the moose fell through a basement window well and ended up in the family’s basement.

Officers from the Blaine County Sheriff’s Department, Hailey Police Department, Bellevue Marshals Office, and the Idaho Fish and Game responded.

Officials say deep snow has brought wildlife closer to town and homes looking for food.
