Problem Moose Returns to Crookston

Posted: Updated:

  The City of Crookston's moose problem returned today.

  The yearling, female moose had been living four-miles east of town, along the Red Lake River for the last several weeks.

  Earlier, it was chased out of town after hanging around the City most of the winter.

  Today, it returned to town and laid down on the lawn of a bank on the north side of town. It eventually got up and crossed Highway 2 and police chased it a quarter mile west of town.

 

Floyd Stave, Crookston: "I think the moose is great. I think they should just leave him alone. But, they should get him out in the country or something. He's going to get hit by a car or some darn thing."

  Police Chief, Tim Motherway says he's now made a request to the D.N.R. to have the moose tranquilized and moved far out of town. Motherway says he's worried someone is going to get hurt by hitting it with their car or by trying to feed it and being attacked.
