MANCHESTER, N.H. — A moose who took a dip in a New Hampshire swimming pool needed the help of nine people to pull him out.

Police, firefighters and state Fish and Game Department officers were called to the Manchester home Friday night. The moose was swimming around, unable to leave.

Rescuers attached a rope to the agitated moose and slowly pulled him out. The moose appeared to be in good health when he walked away into the woods.

Officials say it's breeding season for moose, so it's not uncommon to see them wander into unfamiliar places.

Home owner George Trapotis tells WMUR-TV the moose came through his fence, dived into the pool and fell right through the pool cover.
