ELLSWORTH – Ellsworth police are asking people to stay away from a moose that showed up in town.
It was spotted in the area of Bayside Drive. The animal looks emaciated and people have been very concerned.
Police are worried someone could get hurt if they get too close to the moose.
According to the police department Facebook page, a warden checked it out and determined it’s a young moose that appears to be healthy. It’s just very thin.
A police officer had to direct traffic this morning because of the congestion caused by people slowing or stopping to get a look at the moose.
