MOUNTAIN VIEW (WNE) — Wyoming Game and Fish Department was instrumental in moving a cow and two calf moose out of the Mountain View town limits to the Lonetree area on Oct. 30.
The 30 wildlife managers with WGFD, along with the help of the Uinta County Sherriff’s Office, Mountain View Police Department, Town of Mountain View Maintenance Department and Union Wireless Employees were able to successfully complete the move.
Mountain View Game Warden Allen Deru said that over the last few months, there have been seven different moose in town at one time and Deru said he is aware four more moose could be in the area.
“The relocation of the moose went as well as can be expected considering we had to move three moose,” Deru said. “We are still hoping the other moose in town will leave for the winter months, but relocation efforts are being discussed for them.”
