Moose on the Loose in Boise

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — State wildlife officials say Tuesday afternoon they have tranquilized a moose on the east side of Boise and are moving it to a remote area. Idaho Department of Fish and Game spokesman Mike Keckler says the 400-pound yearling has been living on the east side of the city but has recently started moving toward downtown. Keckler says it was a dangerous situation because moose are large animals and that area of the city has a popular path on both sides of the river that draws walkers, runners and bikers. He says officials had to remove a moose from the east side of Boise last year but it’s not clear if it’s the same moose. State Conservation Officer Bill London said it was doubtful the moose would return to the city.
