“I was driving, and saw the moose calf with its leg caught in the fence,” Congo wrote on Newsflare that day. He wasn’t the only person who noticed, either: “I pulled over, as did another driver,” he said. It was the latter bystander who recorded the events that followed.
“I handed him my phone,” Congo explained, “and he got into … his truck, and recorded the video.” Apparently, the calf was trying to pass through a gap in the fence when its leg snagged in the wire. However, there was another complication.
The calf’s mother was also standing close by, waiting for her flailing baby. “I knew the fence was not enough to protect me from the moose cow,” Congo explained. Consequently, since he didn’t want to risk mother moose’s anger, he had to think of a solution.
