There's a moose loose aboot this... er... hotel

From The Daily Mail:

A hotel in Colorado welcomed a rather unusual guest this week; a one-week-old moose.

The frightened calf was spotted by staff and residents at the Antlers hotel in luxury ski resort Vail on Monday.

A cell phone video sees the tiny animal stood in the lobby area at one point and later lay down in a corridor. It is also seen batting its hoof against a window in a bid to escape.

On a pedantic note, the English term for such an animal is not "moose", it is "elk", which is what Americans call red deer.
