Caribou Treated in Montana Released in Canada
KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Montana wildlife officials say a caribou that was rescued in northwestern Montana last week has recovered and was released back into the wild in British Columbia, Canada.
The caribou was rescued by Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologists after suffering from apparent tick paralysis.
The female caribou was treated and returned to British Columbia wildlife staff. This past weekend, she was able to stand on her own and appeared healthy.
Canadian wildlife officials released her in an area near Cranbrook, British Columbia, where another 10 caribou were spotted.
