Apparently there was some confusion after the announcement of a Moose Summit in town, which has inspired a number of moose to make their way into city limits.
Over the last few weeks, moose have made their way into schoolyards, backyards, and other areas within town.
Conservation Officer Kevin Harrison:
"We try and get as much information as we can from the public. From there we will try and locate the moose and try to chase it out of the city; hopefully, it stays away. If it doesn't or it comes back then we have to tranquillize it, load it up, and haul it out of the area. It happens quite a bit every year."
Harrison says moose may look cute, but you need to be cautious around them.
"Moose are large animals and can be very unpredictable. It's important to keep your distance if you encounter one. If you do see one let conservation officers know or even city police. The cows will defend their calves pretty aggressively, and young bulls can be very unpredictable when stressed, so it's important to stay out of their way."
"We see a wide variety of animals, deer, coyotes, porcupines, moose, racoons, skunks, we see all sorts of animals. If you do see some wildlife in town and you feel it's a threat to somebody, you can call the Turn in Poacher Line at 1-800-667-7561."
