Baby Moose Caught In Gate Is So Totally B.C. (VIDEO)

A baby moose got his hooves caught in a residential gate in the most adorable and quintessentially B.C. story we've heard in a while.

In a YouTube video posted by ShadoHHR last month, the poor little moose is shown with his hooves stuck in the gaps between wood panels.

'Somehow the words 'there's a moose stuck in your fence' doesn't register on the brain the way you might think," ShadoHHR wrote in the video's description. "You get around the corner to see two hooves sticking out of the fence ... and on the other side, the longest, distressed little face, with the biggest brown eyes ever seen."

The video shows some locals working together to chip the wood away enough to free the moose — who was apparently trying to jump over the gate.

When the animal finally has the use of his front legs back, he stands there for a while, as if in a daze. Then he gets the heck out of there.

The video was filmed in the northern B.C. city of Quesnel, Global News reports.

Run free, baby moose! And practice jumping.
