Massachusetts Environmental Police shared photos of the moose officers discovered after receiving a call about a distressed animal near a local interstate.

"Due to the location of the moose, estimated to weigh in excess of 800 pounds, MEP officers specially trained in the chemical immobilization of animals responded," police wrote.

The environmental police received assistance from Worcester Fire Department and Massachusetts State Police and successfully immobilized the moose before removing it from the side of the road.

"The moose was subsequently transported to an undisclosed rural location where it was monitored until it fully recovered from the effects of the immobilization agent," police said.
