Colorado Parks & Wildlife Accuses Man of Harassing Moose
Colorado Parks and Wildlife is asking the public for help identifying a man pictured on social media apparently harassing a moose along a busy stretch of road in Frisco, CO.
According to a witness, he and his passenger observed the man chase the moose onto the median Friday afternoon in the 900 block of 10 Mile Drive in Frisco. They were able to snap a photo of the incident as they drove past.
District Wildlife Manager Elissa Slezak says:
It is very evident from the photo that the moose is angry, and the man could easily have been attacked and injured, or possibly killed. You can clearly see that the moose's ears are pinned back and its hackles are raised.
Slezak says the individual in the photo will likely be cited for harassment of wildlife if he is identified, but the bigger concern is making sure the individual does not repeat the behavior.
