TIMBER LAKE, S.D. (AP) - A moose on the loose is drawing attention in north central South Dakota’s Dewey County.

Sheriff Les Mayer tells KELO-TV that it’s been a couple of years since once of the animals has wandered into the county. He shot a photo of the moose near Timber Lake and put it on the department’s Facebook page, where it’s drawn the attention of hundreds of people.

Nathan Baker with the state Game, Fish and Parks Department tells the Capital Journal that moose spotted in South Dakota likely come from surrounding states with established populations.
