Moose look majestic but because of their size they can be really destructive. They'll also stomp an aggressive dog to death because they can't distinguish between your family pet and their #1 predator - wolves.

Last week, a moose was hanging out in Broomfield:

Broomfield's moose on the loose captured, will be moved to area better suited as habitat

Quote:
A wild moose chase in Broomfield ended Monday morning after wildlife officials captured and relocated a 2-year-old male moose who had been wandering through town since Friday.

The moose was spotted off First Avenue and Laurel Street early in the morning on Monday, but was not captured until after just before noon. Broomfield police and Colorado Parks and Wildlife chased the moose through several neighborhoods before trapping it behind Colorado Dog Academy on Sheridan Boulevard, where it was tranquilized and captured.

Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, said a veterinarian would examine the moose to make sure he is healthy, then he would be released somewhere 30 to 60 miles away in a riparian area that is better suited as moose habitat. . .

A dear friend in Grand Lake (where I used to live), was attacked by a moose as he was walking to church - he did not survive.

Please do not go out and try to pet one. They are not to be messed with.

Saw a few in Reynolds Park five years ago; told a Ranger about it; his response was there were no Moose in that area, confirmed repeated sightings there since then....See them in Aspen routinely..I laughed as front range Jefferson County rangers told me back in 87 that there were no mountain lions in Ken Caryl Valley... spotted one killing the neighbor's cat. SInce then I have seen almost a dozen in my explorations behind the hogback.
