A Utah deputy rescued a moose in distress after the animal got tangled in a swing set.

On Sunday, Sergeant Lane Findlay found himself face to face with the moose. He handed his cell phone to an onlooker to record the whole thing.

At first, Findlay called wildlife officials for help. They told him it could take up to an hour to get someone there.

So the sergeant took matters into his own hands -- and used bolt cutters to free the animal one chain link at a time. After several tries, the moose finally pulled free and ran off with minor injuries.
