New home sought for rare locked moose antlers

BALLANTINE, Mont. (AP) -- A Ballantine man who 21 years ago found two bull moose skeletons with their antlers locked together in a death struggle says he's trying to find a new home for the entwined, 80-pound prize he packed out of the woods.

David Iverson says the antlers had been on display in a museum in West Glacier until the museum was recently sold.

The 64-year-old Iverson tells the Billings Gazette that he wants the antlers to be on public display again somewhere in Montana so that others can experience the excitement he felt when he first spotted them.

He currently has the antlers in a 3-by-5-foot glass case in his home.
