It’s almost unknown to see a moose coming down from the mountains to go deeper into Boulder, especially as it gets warmer, but one female moose was looking to spend some time in Boulder‘s Columbia Cemetery.

“Moose do come down from the mountains from time to time, but overall I would say that is out of the norm,” a Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesperson said. “About once a year do we get a moose make it into the metro area and we have to move them back up into the mountains.”

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is hoping that the moose will go back into the mountains soon so it does not have to be transported back.
