A moose on the loose in a neighborhood in Utah triggered a police chase. Division of Wildlife Resources agents tried to corner him, but the wandering bull moose kept running away. It was stopped when one officer shot him with a tranquilizer dart. The moose was then loaded on a trailer and hauled off. A wildlife biologist will test the moose's blood before its released back into the wild. The Division of Wildlife Resources say it normally gets calls about wandering moose during the winter months, but a few come in spring.
