Moose Returns To City A Week After Relocation To Wilderness

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) -- A 30-mile hike is nothing for a moose with a taste for city life.

Wildlife officials learned as much when they realized a young cow captured Friday in Manitou Springs was a repeat offender. She was trailered a week ago out of Colorado Springs.

She crossed six lanes of highway traffic that day.

Colorado Park and Wildlife officers labeled her a "frequent flyer moose" and secured her transport back to the land of trees and waterfalls, a normally preferable landscape than interstate highways and city parks.

At least for most moose.

We will know in a about a week whether this "frequent flyer moose" ignores her one-way ticket and makes a return trip to metropolis.
