Guard your windows, there’s a moose on the loose.

When a Colorado couple woke up to the sound of glass breaking, they called the police on what they assumed was a burglar.

But when officers arrived on scene, they discovered the culprit wasn’t a criminal caught in the act, but a moose getting a feel for human life.

The unexpected guest had crashed through a basement window after presumably stumbling through deep snow.

Fortunately the animal appeared uninjured.

The moose was then guided out of the house and safely released back into the wild, leaving behind a bit of a mess for her human friends to remember her by.
