Wildlife officers successfully relocated a moose near Plattsburgh that had become trapped in an enclosed pasture with several donkeys and a barn on August 1.

State Department of Environmental staffers drugged the moose to immobilize it while environmental conservation officers provided traffic control, site security, and assisted in lifting the moose from the field into a motor vehicle.

The moose was then taken to a remote area of the Adirondacks and was last seen entering the woods in good health, according to the DEC.
