Three Moose were wondering around northeast Minot today.
The cow and two calves were in the Roosevelt School earlier this afternoon but eventually headed north out of town.
Minot Police Animal Control Officer Dick Schnell says it's not uncommon to see Moose traveling through Minot.
He is cautioning people to keep their distance from the large animals as a cow with calves can be very aggressive in protecting her young.
Schnell also says the Game and Fish no longer will tranquilize the animals for removal because of recent findings by a wildlife veterinarians.
(Dick Schnell, Minot Police Animal Officer) "Capture myopathy which causes, can cause death and also the drugs stay in the system for an extended period of time and if one of them was to get consumed by a human or other animals there's potential that it could be serious."
Schnell says the police will monitor any moose in the city and try to heard the animals out of town, with the help of the State Game and Fish, but if the animal becomes of a danger to people or itself it would be euthanized.
