How do you get a yearling moose out of your swimming pool? That was the problem Chester resident Scott Tyrrell faced on Thursday morning.

But with the help of Chester Police and a Vermont Game warden, the wayward animal is now back in the woods chilling with his mom.

According to Tyrrell, the moose was found this morning, knee-deep in the family swimming pool, which had been drained of most of its water and covered. Icicles dripped from his underbelly.

Tracks leading from the woods behind the house, off Route 10 in Chester, ended on the pool deck, where the animal fell into a couple of feet of water. The family's dogs had been barking at around 2 a.m. and residents thought that the moose may have been in the pool since then.
