Moose Sighted in Panhandle

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission officials are reporting that a moose has been spotted numerous times by residents in the North Platte River Valley in the Panhandle.

The confirmed sightings suggest that the moose has been in the region for several weeks and was last reported in Morrill County. Moose are not common in Nebraska, but are occasionally spotted in the western part of the state. Wildlife biologists expect that the moose wandered into the state from Wyoming.

Officials are urging wildlife watchers to keep their distance from the wild animal. Even if moose appear to be docile, they have been known to become aggressive.
