Crookston moose tranquilized, final video
Posted June 24, 2013
The tarp is placed under the yearling female and she is lifted into the waiting trailer. In the trailer, she's given some basic medical care, and fitted with a radio collar and mortality implant transmitter. She's also given an injection to reverse the effects of the tranquilizer, and within five minutes or so she was standing up in the closed trailer and clearly not a happy camper. She was running a fever, so officials wanted to get her out on the highway in the wind as soon as possible. If she survives, she'll live in the 80,000 Caribou Unit wildlife management area in Kittson County, around 80 miles south of the Canadian border.
