"I turned around to look for my friend and saw this 'brown horse' charging right for me, so I went to the right and then realized it was a moose!" she posted. "I was too scared to stop in case he was charging me!"

The Breckenridge Police Department updated things Monday morning, saying they "assisted Colorado Parks and Wildlife in tranquilizing and relocating 3 moose from the Nordic Center area on Sunday."

BPD reminds anyone who sees a moose or any other animal not to harass them. And "if you encounter a moose, keep your distance and move away as soon as the scene is safe."
