PROVO, Utah (AP) - Wildlife officials say they’ve captured a moose found wandering on the grounds of the Utah State Hospital.

The Provo Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2uVBsif) the bull moose was tranquilized Monday and moved using a trailer equipped with a mister to keep him cool.

He was released into the mountains.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says wildlife officials captured the animal after it settled down to take a nap under the trees on the hospital grounds in Provo.
