GREAT FALLS — A moose that was wandering round components of Nice Falls over the weekend has been safely captured and shall be launched again into the wild. We noticed studies that the moose was seen within the Riverview neighborhood on Saturday night time.
It was then seen at about 6:30 a.m. on Sunday wandering alongside River Drive between 25th Road and 15th Road, stepping over the guardrail towards the steep embankment that results in the Missouri River.
Just a few hours later, officers with the Nice Falls Police Division arrived and blocked off a part of River Drive as they cornered the moose between the 15th Road and ninth Road.
In response to witness Michael Cronin, officers with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks shot the moose with a tranquilizer dart, and the moose bumped into the water.
FWP wardens on a ship acquired a rope on the moose and safely pulled it to the shore. Wardens and GFPD officers hooked up a strap to the moose the place they and members of Nice Falls Hearth Rescue pulled it up the embankment to a FWP trailer.
The moose was taken to FWP area four headquarters for monitoring, and shall be launched again into the mountains.
