Conservation officers team with tow service to save moose

The Idaho Fish and Game Department teamed up with a tow truck operator near Inkom Friday to rescue a moose.

The animal had been tranquilized by Fish and Game officers and then accidentally fell into the Portneuf River.

Officers held the moose’s head above water until Solomon’s Wrecker Service arrived and lifted the moose to safety.

The Bannock County Sheriff’s Office said the moose was later safely released outside of town.
