A moose reported near Boise’s North End early May 22 was last seen in the north Boise Foothills near Wyndemere Drive, and Fish and Game officials are asking anyone who spots the moose over the next few days to report it to (208) 854-8964.
The moose was first reported roaming near Shenandoah Dr. and Shaw Mountain Road at around 7:15 a.m., with multiple other reports at various locations throughout the morning. After a resident reported the moose was bedded down in a neighborhood near 27th Street and Irene Street in northern Boise, Fish and Game staff, along with Boise Police Department, responded in an attempt to sedate and relocate it. Before it could be sedated, the moose fled the area and crossed into the Foothills near Camel’s Back Park.
“It was last seen heading away from the urban center, and hopefully it has made its way into the upper Foothills, but if it lingers in a neighborhood where it could pose a public safety hazard, we will do our best to relocate it,” said Brian Pearson, Southwest Region Communication Manager.
