Moose crashes Alaska teen’s birthday party

June 8 (UPI) — A surprised Alaska family captured video of the unusual visitor that crashed a 14-year-old’s birthday party — a moose in the mood for a swim.

The video, recorded in the back yard of a Palmer resident’s home, shows the moose swimming around in the family’s pool before getting out of the water and shaking itself off.

The filmer said the moose showed up during a party.

“A young bull moose crashed my son’s 14th birthday party in our backyard. He Splashed around and kicked at the equipment and toys. We carried on with the birthday party in the safety of the deck while the moose played for about 30 minutes, then walked back into the woods,” the filmer wrote.
