(POCATELLO, ID) – A moose wandered into a Pocatello neighborhood Monday afternoon. Officials say the moose was spotted in a back yard along Ranch Drive near Jefferson Elementary School. Though relatively rare, Fish and Game officers say its normal for moose to wander into neighborhoods on the outskirts of Idaho towns, especially near the foothills. Typical procedures call for tranquilizing the moose and moving it to a safer location.
