COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are relocating a 700-pound bull moose found on Fort Carson Monday morning.

CPW said the moose was found on post near buildings and vehicles. Officers used tranquilizer to put it to sleep, so they could load the moose up and relocate it.

The CPW officers teamed up with Fort Carson staff to move the moose into the truck where it will be taken to the mountains in Teller County.

Prior to its release, CPW officers reversed the tranquilizer to wake the moose and give it a bath.

This moose rescue comes days after CPW officers rescued a cow moose from a Colorado Springs park and relocated to the mountains west of the city.
