A bull moose, appearing tired from struggling with the steep sides and swift flowing water in the Esquatzel Diversion Channel, curls up to rest on a clump of grass growing out of cracks in the concrete lined irrigation canal Monday Sept. 19, 2011 about six miles north of Pasco. An officer from the Department of Fish and Wildlife later shot the animal because officials couldn’t determine a safe way to rescue the animal. The meat will be donated to the Tri-City Union Gospel Mission.
