Summer visitors

Four moose elude capture in Butte



From the Montana Standard:
Par for the course this time of year, four moose eluded capture Thursday – three off Little Basin Creek Road and another at the Butte Country Club, authorities said.
Game warden Regan Dean said attempts were made Thursday morning to shoot two cow moose and a yearling with tranquilizer darts in the Little Basin Creek Road area southwest of the Copper Mountain Recreation Complex. They had been there for a few weeks and were "bugging people," Dean said.
One cow chased a few homeowners, Dean said. No injuries were reported.
After initial reports came in, the agency coordinated with a Bozeman-based veterinarian capable of tranquilizing wildlife – thus delaying the response to remove the moose. The animals escaped eastbound in the direction of Timber Butte.
Summer in Butte.

  3. "bugging people" eh? The two suspects pictured look pretty guilty to me. I believe they're planning some outrage.
