It’s #mooseontheloose, Day 2.
The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) will continue it’s search Saturday for a moose that has been running around several residential neighbourhoods in Markham.
The search was suspended Friday night as officials work on a plan to capture the animal safely on Saturday. Experts say it is extremely rare for a moose to come into the city on it’s own. The MNR may look into tranquilizing the animal before moving it back north or take the wait-and-see approach to let it find it’s own way back.
York regional police and animal services began tracking the bull moose on Friday morning at around 7 a.m. when it was spotted close to Buttonville Airport. It was seen wandering through neighbourhoods and crossed busy roadways, nearly getting hit by several cars.
It was last seen in a green space near the 16th Avenue and Kennedy road area around 3 p.m.
