As our human habitations encroach more and more on animal habitats, interactions become inevitable — whether that means bears eating from trash cans, seals sleeping on sofas, or baby moose caught in fences. Luckily this little buddy ran into kind-hearted humans when he got himself trapped in a wooden gate in a Canadian suburb.

The moose gets freed at 1:05, but then inexplicably spends the next three minutes standing around making chewing motions instead of running off, somewhat baffling his rescuers. It’s not clear he learned his lesson — but at least now the humans know how to get a moose out of a fence, for next time.
