A moose is wandering around western Nebraska.
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission officials say a number of residents in the North Platte River Valley in the Panhandle have reported spotting a moose.
While it’s not common to see moose in Nebraska, they do occasionally make an appearance in western Nebraska. The confirmed sightings of this moose, according to Game and Parks, indicate the moose has been in the region for several weeks. Wildlife biologists believe the moose wandered into Nebraska from Wyoming.
Game and Parks does issue a precaution: keep your distance from a moose.
Moose are wild animals and even if they appear docile, they can turn aggressive.
