Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

UPDATE (WQOW) –  A moose that was spotted in Clark County mid-September is now roaming in a different area, with help from the DNR.

As we reported, Marci Tetzlaff, who lives in the Town of Worden, which is about 10 miles south of Stanley, found the moose eating her trees and watching her cows.

According to the DNR, that bull moose is familiar with the area. The DNR rescued the moose after it became entangled with some wire in 2015 and fitted it with red ear tags. The DNR captured and released him then, and did the same thing Thursday.

According to the DNR’s facebook page, the moose wore out his welcome on some small farms near Fairchild after showing aggression and injuring a horse. DNR agents immobilized the moose and moved him to a remote area in the Clark County Forest.

 


 

 

Clark County (WQOW) – There’s a moose on the loose! Well, kind of. A Clark County woman said a moose has spent the better part of the day Wednesday roaming around her yard.

Marci Tetzlaff told News 18 the male moose showed up in her yard early Wednesday morning eating off the trees and spending time near the cows she has.

Tetzlaff lives in the town of Worden, about 10 miles south of Stanley.

She said this is the first time she has ever seen a moose in this area and she couldn’t believe what she was seeing.
