Social media backlashes this weekend against people harassing moose helped Colorado Parks and Wildlife identify individuals involved in two separate cases. Now wildlife officers are asking for help again. Over the weekend, a video cropped up of two men approaching and trying to touch a moose in a Frisco neighboorhood. The video, which was taken roughly three weeks ago, shows the moose kicking at one of the men.

CPW became aware of both incidents … [Read more...] about Wildlife officers ask for more help after social media helped track down two people harassing moose in Summit County
