Moose crashes into Sylvia Fedoruk School in Saskatoon



It was a wild morning in Saskatoon as a moose smashed through a window of an elementary school.

A spokesperson for the Saskatoon Public Schools division said the moose broke through a community room window at Sylvia Fedoruk School just before 9 a.m. CST on Thursday morning during a before-school program.

One student sustained minor injuries but did not need medical help. 

Ben Denis saw the moose trotting down his alley while working in his home office. He noticed a conservation officer tracking the animal, so he decided to follow behind.

When he arrived at the school, officers told him the moose had smashed inside.

Within about 45 minutes, conservation officers had tranquilized the moose and brought the unconscious animal outside.

Curious, Denis followed the conservation officers outside the city and talked to them as they stopped at a gas station.

He said he was told that the moose was in good condition and would be released outside the city.

“It’s a feel-good story, even if there was a little bit of property damage,” said Denis. 

“I think it’s the type of story we need after everything that’s gone on.”

Saskatoon Public Schools said classes at the school are continuing as normal.
