(Photo NOT of the Montreal moose)
This morning in the St Michel district of Montreal east, officials’ recieved a call regarding a wayward moose seen on Jarry Street around 8:30 AM. They believe the animal swam across the open water to reach the island of Montreal, which brought it into the heart of Canada’s second largest city.
Police worked quickly and managed to corner the animal where a wildlife officer administered the tranquilizer. Officers were standing by with long guns but fortunately did not have to use them.
The moose was a female believed to be two or three years of age and weighing at least 500 pounds.
The cow moose was safely removed by 9 a.m. and transported to a rural area in the Laurentians, where it will be released back into the wild.
Ahh, they make it sound so easy..
