A British Columbia man who saw a moose get its back leg caught in a fence freed the animal and was kicked and chased around his yard by the ungrateful beast.

Marc Schoene was in his West Kelona yard with his wife when the large moose calf tried to jump a fence and ended up with one of its back legs caught in the wires.

Schoene, who posted video of the incident to YouTube, used wire cutters to free the moose, thinking it would leave the yard, but the confused and ungrateful moose kicked him in the back and shoulder before chasing him around the yard.

Schoene was not seriously injured and the moose eventuality left by jumping over a few neighboring fences to reach an open area.
