Conservation officers had to help two bull moose that had become trapped in the Yukon Highways and Public Works compound behind Canadian Tire on Sunday.
The moose got stuck inside the fenced area and became agitated.
Yukon Environment received a call from a cyclist who was nearby and noticed the moose.
“We slowly corralled the moose toward the front gate,” Environment officer Tynan Thurmer said.
Parks and Environment officers used their vehicles, following the moose and honking, to guide them out of the property.
The officers aren’t sure how the moose ended up in the fended compound in the first place.
The moose are probably siblings, about two years old, Thurmer said.
“This is fairly rare that both moose ended up inside that compound which such high fencing,” he said.
“They were pretty lost and distressed as they couldn’t figure out how to get out again,” Thurmer said.
Officials closed neighbouring roads during the operation, in case the distressed moose posed a threat to the public.
