Wandering bull moose captured in Albany suburb

HALFMOON (AP) – A young bull moose that wandered into an Albany suburb has been captured and is being relocated to the Adirondacks.

Local media outlets report that state police and environmental conservation officers tranquilized the moose Tuesday morning in a wooded backyard in the Saratoga County town of Halfmoon, just north of Albany.

Officials say the moose had been seen earlier in neighboring Clifton Park near Interstate 87, the Adirondack Northway.

The moose was being transported to the Adirondacks to be released in the wild.
