Moose Sighting | VideoJulie Leonardi | 12/3/2012
Police say it`s best to leave the moose alone and they will eventually leave our area. These are 800 pound animals, and mothers can be defensive. If you`re in your car, don`t move and notify the police. Don`t go looking for the animals, they typically aren`t a threat when just passing through.
“Remember they are wild animals, they are not somebody`s house pet. They`re not used to having people around. The more people are around the more agitated and scared they get when that`s involved with a wild animal the risk of injury`s go up,” said animal conrtol officer Bobby Roberts.
If you see the animals and feel threatened, call the Minot Police Department at 701-852-0111.
