Two Yearling Moose Relocated to Remote Area After Sightings in Idaho

Two yearling moose were relocated to a remote area of Bannock County, Idaho, after they were spotted in the county’s largest city, Pocatello, on June 23.

Footage released by Idaho Fish and Game on June 27 shows the young animals being released from trailers into a forested area, after the department received two reports of moose near Mountain View Cemetery.

According to wildlife officials, the moose were females and “appeared to be in good condition.”

“It is not known if the moose were twins or simply traveling together, but yearling moose are often ‘kicked out’ by the mothers this time of year as new calves are born,” a statement from Idaho Fish and Game said. Credit: Idaho Fish and Game via Storyful
