Across from our office was a moose! We followed it so the Fish and Game would know where to go, and after they tranquilized it we helped load it in their horse trailer. [img]smile.gif[/img]
Kind of hard to see, but if you look right above the purple flower you can see her outline:
Here she has been tranquilized and the Fish and Game officer is holding her so that she won't try to stand.
Same guy, just a closer shot.
They put her on a tarp with handles and we all helped carry her out. Here's a head shot of her.
Here's her hind quarters (where I was carrying from). If you look close on the lower left you can see where they darted her (some blood is there, it just shows as a dark spot on the picture).
All loaded up in the horse trailer.
Sorry about the quality of the pictures, all I had with me was my cell phone and it's camera isn't the best. The F&G guys said this was the second or third time they had had to remove this moose from town. Cow moose weighing in at about 700 pounds they thought. Looked bigger than that to me.
