Poor Moose!

First, she fell through thin ice, but luckily got rescued by some good Samaritans who happened to be nearby and have rope.

Fish and Game folks decried the effort and said they shouldn't have bothered as people shouldn't mess with nature (except for hitting them with cars and hunting them with guns and bows, right?).

Three weeks later, she was spotted, alive and well and with her calf, roaming around town with the rope from her rescue dangling around her neck.

Finally, Fish and Game tasered her in attempt to remove the rope. They failed.

Dear Fish and Game: Please leave her alone. Thank you.

Tasered!? Golly. What are your police doing with tasers anyways? I thought the most exciting thing that happens around there is a moose falling through ice, not crazy criminals rioting in the street. Tasers in Fairbanks? Seeeesh.

Also they ought to leave the rope - this way they don't have to tag her with one of those earrings - she already has her distinctive marker.
