Moose in Quebec Gets Rescued from Wolf Snare

Wildlife officials rescued a moose from a cable snare and took the opportunity to tag it for further study.

Armed with a pair of bolt cutters and some moxey, wildlife officers in Quebec were able to cut free a cow moose that was caught in a snare meant for wolves.

It’s a little hard to tell, but the moose just seems groggy from the experience, rather than a tranquilizer.

Here’s the rescue: 

My French is pretty rusty, but it seems the cow was caught in a snare used by poachers to catch wolves.

Whatever the case, those wildlife officers deserve a medal and a hot cup of Joe! It seems like an obvious addition to go ahead and add the ear tag for safe keeping.

Cheers to the hardworking conservation officers everywhere!
