Moose Tranquilized and Moved from Easthampton to Huntington

A young female moose caused quite a stir in Easthampton Wednesday.  The 500-plus pound yearling made her way through yards and down streets before she was tranquilized so she could be moved.  After attracting a large crowd of onlookers and picture-takers, the moose was placed on a flatbed truck and taken to a more moose-appropriate place in the woods in Huntington.
