Moose on the Loose!

Diary Entry 2

A drugged moose

    "The immobilization drug seemed to work well, but the moose continued to respond to slight noises or activities, such as ear tag attachment and collar replacement. Her initial temperature was 101 degrees F. After about 10 minutes, it had gone up slightly to 102 degrees F. We kept her cool by placing sphagnum moss on her. Dean collected blood samples. The reversal of the immobilization drug was administered about noon, after we got her up in a prone position. She was up on her feet in about 5 minutes. She stood up, looked at us, and began to browse on nearby shrubs. Then, she wandered off into the brush, eating shrubs along the way, and occasionally looking back at us."
