This is the same moose that was spotted on Father's Day in Arvada. Wildlife officials say this is the first time they have had a tagged moose come back into town.

The moose is 2 years old and weighs about 700 pounds. Colorado Parks and Wildlife say the hope is that the young moose can find a mate and stay out of trouble.
