Moose on the loose triggers police chase
LOGAN, Utah (AP) - May 18, 2012 (WPVI) -- Utah wildlife officials say a moose went on a jaunt through neighborhoods north of Logan and triggered a police chase.
Division of Wildlife Resources officers tried to corner the wandering bull moose on Wednesday morning when the animal ran away. It was stopped when conservation officer Mark Burgess shot it with a tranquilizer dart.
Officers rolled the subdued moose in a large tarp and lifted him into a trailer.
Burgess told The Herald Journal that a wildlife biologist would test the animal's blood before it is released into the wild, most likely into Blacksmith Fork Canyon.
Burgess says most of the moose calls that the department receives come in the winter, but a few come during the early spring.
