DENVER (KDVR) — A moose in Steamboat Springs, Colorado has died after it jumped from a second-story deck, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
On Sunday, rangers with CPW responded to a call about a moose at the Steamboat Ski Resort, located about 160 miles northwest of Boulder.
When they arrived, rangers discovered that a moose had apparently jumped off the second-story deck of a building, broken its neck and died from the injuries.
CPW said they could not confirm if the moose was agitated or how close it was to people when the incident happen.
Rangers removed the moose from the resort and donated its body. Additional details weren’t immediately available.
Last week, CPW found a dead mother moose near Steamboat Springs. A cause of death had not been determined, and the district wildlife manager told the Steamboat Pilot there were no obvious signs of trauma.
“How we found it does indicate it found a place to lay down before it died, so probably something internal, but no real clear idea other than that,” David Rehak Suma said.
