Moose in Fort Lewis, Durango moved to forest habitat

Another moose interested in exploring urban areas has been tranquilized and relocated by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

CPW officials removed the curvy moose last week from a hill near Fort Lewis College after spending three days in and around the town of Durango. It was broadcast in an area of ​​the San Juan National Forest where there is a thriving moose population, according to a press release from CPW.

In July, a moose was pulled from Vail after spending more than a week frequenting the Lionshead parking lot. This one enjoyed licking the walls of the building, said CPW, apparently drawn to the tasty residue from the de-icing agents used there.

Last September, a moose that had developed an apparent fondness for the Colorado Springs area was moved to the high country, only to return to Manitou Springs a week later after a 30-mile round-trip hike.
