Moose tranquilized after roaming Colorado citySeptember 23, 2013 @ 1:13 pm
BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) - State wildlife officials have tranquilized a moose on the loose in suburban Denver.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers were called on Monday to capture the animal, which had been wandering the streets of Broomfield for weeks before it became a problem for residents.
The agency estimates the male moose is 3 years old and weighs about 1,000 pounds.
KMGH-TV reports the animal was spotted wandering through residential neighborhoods and in and out of people's yards.
Wildlife officials say the moose caused no injuries or major damage and will be taken back to the Continental Divide, where it can find food and water.
