A firefighter in Connecticut had a once in a lifetime call on Friday night and helped to rescue a moose that was stuck. Riverton Volunteer Fire Company Lt. Tyler O'Neil said he received a call about a moose stuck on a fence at the Saville Dam in Barkhamsted. When he arrived, he said one of his friends and a state trooper were there. At that time, it was unclear how long the moose had been there. Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police said it appeared the moose was impaled by the fence, but he was just stuck and was unable to get his rear legs over. His belly kept him from going backwards over the fence.
