Pogo moose incident....Fairbanks, Alaska

They were laying new power cables, which were strung on the ground for miles. The moose are in rut right now and they are very agitated. This moose was thrashing around when he got his antlers stuck in the cables. When the men [ miles away ] began pulling the lines up, with their large equipment, the moose went up with them. The men noticed excessive tension in the lines, and went searching for the problem. He was still alive when they lowered him to the ground. He was a huge 60 inch bull and was somewhat peeved.
