A moose in Brandon didn’t set up residency for too long in the Wheat City on Friday.
Brandon Police tweeted shortly after 8 a.m. that they were trying to herd the moose in the area of Rosser Avenue East. They asked the public to use caution in the area.
Police escorted the animal out of the city about 15 minutes later, tweeting, “Success! The moose has made it safely out of the city, crossed the river NE of 1600 Rosser Ave E with a full police escort!”
According to the Brandon Sun, it’s the second moose spotted in the city this week. Residents on Tuesday reported a young moose in their yard on Marquis Crescent before it wandered off.
