Feedback: Video Of Moose Running Loose In Lowville


Out for a morning stroll, Jennifer Wood met up face to face with another stroller.

This one was on four legs and very, very large.

"I can't believe there is a moose in Lowville," said Wood.

As she hid behind a tree, the young bull moose turned and went into the parking lot of Lowville Academy & Central School.

The school custodian couldn't believe what he saw.

"First moose I saw in New York other than a zoo," said Buck Stockman.

The school's surveillance cameras show a car nearly backing into the moose and then the animal picks up the pace as he decides he's had enough of school. 

"I don't usually expect to see Bullwinkle roaming through the parking lot when I check the surveillance video, but there he is," said Jon Bassette, the school computer network manager.

People called Lowville Village Police.

"Somebody said he might be going to the radio station," said Russell Moseley, village police officer.

Lowville's radio station is "The Moose."

"That would be a great thing," said Bill Flack, radio station owner.

The moose is long gone from the parking lot.

Where he came from and where he was trying to go is anyone's guess.

"We did a little chasing him around, myself and the sheriff's department and state police and got him headed outside the village," said Moseley. 

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has taken over the hunt.

The wild moose chase in Lowville is over, at least for now.
