SLEEPY EYE, Minn. (AP) - A wandering moose spotted in the unfamiliar habitat of southern Minnesota has been found dead.

Department of Natural Resources wildlife research manager Lou Cornicelli says he got word from colleagues Thursday that the moose was found dead in someone’s yard, but didn’t have any other details. Minnesota Public Radio News (https://bit.ly/11GC0HN ) says the DNR plans to retrieve the carcass and do a necropsy.

The yearling bull moose was seen munching on apples at a farm near Sleepy Eye last week.
