Tab Baker had quite a surprise this week when he found a moose in his garage. 

The moose had decided to wander in and park itself beside his black pickup truck — all just to get a lick of road salt. 

The ungulate had entered Baker's rental property in the North Meadows-area of Prince George. 

"It definitely gets your attention," said Baker. "I drove by [at] first and said, 'What the heck?' because you don't realize how big they are until you get right up to them."

The video below shows their exchange.
