BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A wayward moose turned heads in North Dakota’s capital city.

The young bull moose sauntered through a mall parking lot, backyards and the state Capitol grounds on Tuesday.

The animal drew a crowd wherever it went, but police urged people to stay away from the stressed wild animal.

City Animal Warden Ed Woodcock says it’s the time of year when moose mothers are kicking out their young. He says the moose likely wandered into the city from the Baldwin or McKenzie areas.
