PARLEY’S CANYON, Utah — The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently relocated four moose from the side of I-80 in Parley’s Canyon.

According to a statement from the DWR, the organization was notified that the moose, three young bulls and one cow, were in danger on Jan. 26.

The Utah Highway Patrol slowed traffic while DWR biologists tranquilized the animals.

“The moose were loaded into trailers, given a reversal drug and relocated to safer moose habitat in central Utah,” said a statement from the DWR. “All four moose received GPS tracking collars to monitor their movement and migration.”
