State wildlife biologists in October tranquilized a moose north of the city and removed an arrow from its nose.
The latest injured moose was seen south of Fairbanks near North Pole.
Wildlife trooper Dave Bump responded to a call and arrived in time to see the animal with arrow fletching sticking out of its nasal area.
Bump says it’s not known if the moose was shot in the season that ended Nov. 27 or in an earlier hunt.
He tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that no decision has been made about additional action to be taken, such as euthanizing the moose or removing the arrow.
