NORTHERN NEW MEXICO GOT A RARE VISITOR LAST WEEK. GAME AND FISH POSTED THIS PICTURE OF A MOOSE, SPOTTED BY CONSERVATION OFFICER KEITH HAWS NORTH OF TRES PIEDRAS ON FRIDAY. THE AGENCY SAYS THERE ARE ONLY ONE OR TWO MOOSE SIGHTINGS IN NEW MEXICO EVERY FEW YEARS. WE KNOW OF ONE ABOUT A YEAR AGO NEAR COSTILLA, AND A PAIR OF MOOSE SPOTTED THE YEAR BEFORE NEAR CHAMA. IT HAPPENS WHEN THE ANIMALS WANDER SOUTH FROM COLORADO. 0:37 as in this case it tends to be a young bull moose looking for a place to call his own. they kind of wander around and most of the time they wander back to colorado and back to their native habitat. 0:48 MOOSE ARE A PROTECTED SPECIES. IT IS ILLEGAL TO HUNT THEM. TONIGHT…Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 40s.
