New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Environmental Conservation Police Officers started August off with a call regarding a moose enclosed in a pasture in Plattsburgh. Of course they jumped to the rescue.

The DEC reports ECO Matthew LaCroix received a call regarding a moose discovered by a farmer in an enclosed pasture outside Plattsburgh. The officer responded to the scene and found a young female moose in a fenced-in area that included a barn and several donkeys.

DEC Bureau of Wildlife staff and several additional ECOs responded to assist in removing the moose from the pasture. Due to the proximity to residential and commercial areas close to Plattsburgh, the officers determined that the moose should be relocated to a more suitable habitat.

The moose was successfully relocated to a remote area of the Adirondacks and was last seen entering the woods in good health.
