FALMOUTH, Maine — An employee of The Maine Wire, a conservative news website, saw an unusual sight Tuesday morning: A moose running alongside his car while he drove down the Falmouth Spur.

“It’s unusual to see a moose this close to the shore,” comments the videographer, “but perhaps he was heading north to enjoy some Fourth of July festivities in the deep woods with his family.”

The moose paced the car for several seconds before jumping the guardrail, avoiding the oncoming traffic and disappearing into the woods.
