State officials are asking anyone who sees a moose in Westchester County to leave it on the loose.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation said that it has received several recent calls about a moose in Westchester County.
The Daily Voice reports that the moose, thought to be about 7 feet tall and weigh as much as 900 pounds, was last spotted near the woods alongside Bear Mountain Parkway near the border of Putnam County. The same moose was probably also spotted near Bedford, Ossining and Millwood.
The news site posted several photos and a video of the animal.
The last moose sighting in Westchester County came in 2008, according to state officials.
The DEC is asking anyone who sees the animal to keep a safe distance and call its wildlife line at 845-256-3098. The department doesn't typically attempt to capture a loose moose unless it is a danger to the public.
