A moose was on the loose in Bangor this morning — though by 8 a.m. game wardens and state police said it had appeared to go back into the woods.
Dispatchers received multiple calls about a juvenile moose running around various parts of Bangor. The first calls came in around 5 a.m., reporting a moose around Union Street. Bangor Daily News reader Chelsea Brown sent the BDN a video showing the moose running down the street near what appears to be the former Bangor Theological Seminary.
By 7 a.m., the moose had made its way through town over to the east side, and was reported wandering around the Little City neighborhood. Little City resident Julie Rand saw the moose in the area of Lemist Street and Earle Avenue, while fellow Little City resident Christine Bragdon also posted a photo of the moose in that area.
