Two calves, and a large brown, chocolate moose, were checking out the neighborhood of an east end street Thursday afternoon. After a casual stroll up East Meadows they stopped for a break in a resident's yard.
A few dozen onlookers took some pictures, and waited an officer to fire a tranquilizer at the mom, the moose mom that is. It was then lifted into the bed of a pickup.
While they did not cause a disturbance, police and wildlife officials were soon on the scene. The mother looked very tired, patient, and curious as to what all the commotion was about.
This young calf was taken into juvenile custody, and will hopefully not re offend again.
