LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - State wildlife experts say a young moose that has been wandering through populated areas in northeastern New York is likely looking for his own place to hang out.
Ed Reed, a regional wildlife manager, tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls that the male moose may have been pushed out of another territory by an older bull moose. Reed says the young moose apparently is looking for his own territory.
The moose was first reported in Queensbury in Warren County earlier this week. It was spotted Thursday a few miles north in the Lake George area.
Reed says the moose could have wandered over from neighboring Vermont.
He says people who see the moose should keep a healthy distance away from the animal. Moose can charge and stomp people if agitated.
