FAIRBANKS, ALASKA- A second moose with an arrow in it nose has been spotted roaming around the Fairbanks, Alaska area after another one was tranquilized to remove an arrow from its snout.

Alaska State Wildlife Troopers saw the animal with an arrow fletching sticking out of its nasal area.

It's not known if the moose was shot in the season that ended in November or in an earlier hunt.

Troopers say no decision has been made about what to do, such as euthanizing the animal or removing the arrow.
