Ottawa resident Paul Koch was "shocked" to find a moose in his backyard swimming pool Friday morning.
"It's still a mystery to me how she got in the backyard," Koch said. "She'd have to jump a minimum of a five to five-and-a-half-foot fence to do it."
The moose spent several hours swimming around in the pool at the home near Hunt Club Road and Uplands Drive, later moving to the shallow end to stand up...
Police later said the moose had "rejoined its buddies" in the forest.
The moose punched a serious hole in the Kochs' pool lining. But despite the repairs they'll have to make, the Kochs say this was a highlight of their 40 years as homeowners.

A moose accidentally rang a doorbell with his behind while bumbling around the outside of an Anchorage, Alaska home.
On Thursday, Kyle Stultz and his partner Allie Johnstone heard the doorbell ring at 1:30 AM. They thought it was a prankster until they saw the security cam footage. That's when they learned it was a moose whose backside had hilariously set off the bell. The video is everything.
After checking on their dogs and looking out the door to find nothing, Stultz assumed some neighborhood kids were playing a prank.
"We were thinking kids coming through playing ding dong ditch or maybe a neighbor coming through. We had no idea," Stultz said.
So they checked their security system and were surprised to see a moose caboose.
"We had this nice moose behind waiting for us right here," Stultz said. "And he decided to back up right into it and that’s how he got our doorbell."

On a brisk wintry day, this clever moose decided to use a car's exhaust to get a faceful of warm air. The best part is the car owner who keeps scraping his windshield. Read the rest
