A very large animal got stuck in a New Hampshire pool Tuesday night -- and was not a-moosed.
A young bull moose waded into the backyard pool and couldn't climb out for hours, because it didn't have stairs.
Officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department swooped in to save the moose, eventually coaxing it out of the pool by placing a wooden set of stairs underwater.
After emerging from the water, the moose took off into the woods.

With apologies to Isaac Watts:
A big bull mouse
For want of stairs
Swam in the pool
To say its prayers.
Video shows he got out on his own. Excellent.
The guys were herding him with a rope, but there were stairs they were trying to coax him towards.
He’s going to have one Helluva story to tell his buds.
I didn’t think it was legal to have a pool without stairs.
I don’t know about NH laws.........maybe it was an old pool.
There’s no pool like an old pool........................
I believe that the building code in New Hampshire for pools reads “What’s a pool and who needs one?”
Exactly. There are laws about fences and safety so you’d think steps would be a requirement.
The Moose needs a good lawyer.
Was it after your sister?.....................
Well, they can Ice skate on it in winter.................
