Taking care of the swimmers is tough enough, but organizers also have to find somewhere to put the more than 600 parents who attend the meet.

It was on the loose for nearly four hours-- running through city streets and backyards.
It was finally taken down after three shots with a tranquilizer gun.
Afterwards workers iced down the moose to keep it cool.
It took fourteen people to load it up and carry it away back to the great outdoors. (----------------)
