The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that the moose lost an eye at some point and also has a rear leg that doesn't work after getting tangled in barbed wire last winter.
Idaho Fish and Game conservation officer Matt Haag freed the moose from the wire that cut to the bone. This fall he has received calls after the moose showed up in Kootenai.
But Haag says the moose appears relatively healthy despite the old injuries and seems to be making a living.
He says winter might get her, but she's a tough old moose that might surprise everybody.
