Moose loose in Canada

A moose was on the loose Thursday in the middle of a busy neighborhood.

He decided to take an early stroll in Ontario, Canada.

The moose appeared to take a liking to one home in particular, settling down in the yard for hours.

The homeowner was a bit shocked to find the animal outside his door.

"It was, (we) found it there this morning, and we waited around for somebody to come and remove it,” said Lloyd Readman. “Nobody has come yet, so we went grocery shopping, and when we came back, here's all the police cars blocking it off."

The animal was tranquilized, moved and released into the wild.
