Security camera reveals unexpected visitor

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) — An Anchorage, Alaska couple found themselves as targets of a ding dong ditch and surveillance video captured the surprise visitor.

Security cameras catch all sorts of things in Alaska, but for one Alaska couple, they had a door bell ring on their camera that they weren't expecting.

It happened early in the morning at 1:30 a.-m. when Allie, Kyle and their roommate woke up to their doorbell ringing.

Allie Johnstone said, "I had just got done with two final projects last night. I was coming to bed. I was out to relax. I'm at the end of the night, and ding dong. We are all in alert mode like, what's going on? We woke up -- I woke up. I was in bed when the earthquake happened so I ran out of bed and we're getting kind of our way back into life right now after still hearing all these aftershocks. So at that point of night, it was like what now?"

They checked outside to see no one there.

Kyle Stultz said, "We were thinking maybe kids coming through playing ding dong ditch, maybe one of our neighbors came by. We had no idea."

So they checked their security system and were surprised with what they saw.

Stultz said, "So we came over to this hub and when we pulled up the video, we had this nice moose behind waiting for us right here and he decided to back up right into it and that's how he got our doorbell. Right when we saw the moose back into the camera we all just started laughing."

Johnstone added, "Like oh my gosh, he did in fact ring it himself!"

Even Allie's nephew Logan was shocked by the video.

He said, "How? Why would a moose go into a garage? It must be a pretty big moose to get stuck."

Johnstone said, "It's hilarious. It's been great. I told my entire group at work. I told them everything and they're all laughing and having a good time."

The trio is just happy the security camera caught something positive this time.

"It makes you feel safe and that it could catch moments like that, where it's not just security, it's also a little bit of comic relief, is like really nice."

And wise words from an 8-year-old...Logan Trent said, "In Alaska, you don't give the moose a muffin."

While this moose didn't get a muffin, he gave a great story for the trio to tell.
