Nuisance moose may get paint job from officers

WILDLIFE -- Washington Fish Wildlife officers have been armed witha new weapon to deal with nuisance moose.

Six paint ball guns and accessories valued at more that $1,200 were given to the Spokane region thanks to a donation from the Northwest Sportsman’s Club in Spokane. 

The guns will be used primarily for hazing moose in the greater Spokane area and Pullman, according to Mike Whorton, spokane region enforcement chief.
