(KSL) A Utah couple had an unexpected visitor drop in on them on Valentine's Day.

Gabriele Goulet and her fiance, Tim Morgan, were housesitting for her parents in Summit County Thursday morning, when they heard a loud sound of shattering glass.

They immediately ran downstairs, and realized the home invader was a female moose who fell through a window well, landing inside the basement. She had several cuts, and was bleeding onto the carpet.

Concerned for the animal and their safety, Goulet called 911, while Morgan tried to lure the moose out of the basement.
