Photo: Downed by an arrow

Posted: Thursday, May 06, 2004

A young bull moose with a cheap aluminum arrow is treated by state biologists and wildlife officers Monday in Anchorage. The moose had been carrying the arrow at a 45-degree angle, as if it had been shot from above, perhaps by someone on a deck, said biologist Rick Sinnott of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The arrow was easily plucked, and Sinnott said he could not find a tip. "Even if the tip of a target point is imbedded in the spine, it'll probably heal and be OK," Sinnott said.
