‘Frequent Flyer Moose’ Returns to Colorado City After Relocation
A young moose was captured in Colorado Springs back in September and then released back up into the mountains. She had crossed six lanes of traffic that day, as reported by 4 CBS Denver.
It looks like this girl couldn't take the hint that a bustling metro area is not a safe environment for a young moose. Within one week of relocation, she was found wandering around Manitou Springs.
Colorado Park and Wildlife officers have labeled her a "frequent flyer moose."
Moose typically don't make their way down the mountain because they thrive in cooler climate, but when they do its usually a younger moose.
