Lost Moose still wandering


Remember the young moose that earlier was observed in a field south of Hardy and then moved on to Republic County? Well the two-year-old male moose is in the news again. Saturday the Lincoln Journal-Star reported he had made a loop through Kansas and had been in recent days near Wilber and in Gage County (Beatrice).

He was first observed near Ainsworth last year. He wandered south past Ravenna and Hastings and then was seen near Hardy and Belleville.

Because of their size and lack of predators, a moose generally makes little effort to hide. Seldom are they seen this far south. Game specialists report it is common for a young male moose to leave the herd he was born in to search for a new herd and find a female to mate with. Problem is this moose took a wrong turn and has not been able to find others of his kind.

The curious are warned to stay away from the moose. The animals do not see well and when alarmed can be dangerous.
