v.— «“Once the animal gets entangled in the net, then we get out of the ship and what we affectionately call “mug” it,” net gunner Bob Teagle said. Mugging means trying to get the elk off its legs, covering its eyes and then holding on until help arrives.» —“Wild Elk Relocation Operation Begins” in Concord, Calif. KCRA-TV (Sacramento, California) Feb. 13, 2006.
