BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Wildlife authorities say a moose is roaming the streets of Bismarck.

North Dakota Game and Fish officials say reports started coming in Thursday afternoon about a moose wandering the city.

Warden Cory Erck told the Bismarck Tribune that people should leave the animal alone. He says moose can be aggressive and Wednesday’s heat likely left this one stressed out.

Authorities say they’re going to leave the moose alone and hope it wanders out of town on its own.
