SALT LAKE CITY – Governor Gary Herbert saw something unusual at the Capitol and couldn’t help but document the event.

He caught a moose running around the grounds and posted it to Facebook, possibly so others would believe him when he told the tale.

Not something you see every day on Capitol Hill.

Utah Division of Wildlife agents along with Utah State Troopers and State Capitol Security tranquilized the moose and said they plan to release it in a remote area of Spanish Fork Canyon.

No moose or man was injured.
