Moose and quarrel: Utah won't pay for damage caused when officials tranquilized wayward moose
PROVO, Utah -- Two Utah students feel goosed by a moose on the loose.
Their cars were parked on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo when a young bull moose showed up June 4. State wildlife officials shot it with a tranquilizer gun, but before it fell, it busted through a barricade and collapsed on the cars.
One of the students, Cassi Elton, said she expected the state to pick up the $1,500 in damages. State officials say there's no provision for reimbursing for that kind of damage.
An autobody shop in Orem has offered free repairs for the students.
And the moose? He was released into the wild and hasn't been seen since.
