BOZEMAN (AP) — A bull moose's walking tour of Bozeman ended when state wildlife officials tranquilized the animal and released it in the Gallatin National Forest.
The moose wandered around the city Thursday morning with an entourage of Fish, Wildlife and Parks wardens, police officers and reporters trying to capture photos and video of the journey.
The moose made appearances near Montana State University, Bozeman's law and justice building, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle and a grocery store.
Eventually, wildlife officials were able to catch up with the animal and hit it with a tranquilizer dart. It was loaded into a trailer to be released in the Spanish Creek area of the Gallatin National Forest.
