BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A cow moose that went out on a stroll alarmed residents in western Montana before officers were able to herd it safely out of town.

The Montana Standard reports (https://bit.ly/2pjYH2I) several Deer Lodge residents had started calling authorities on Saturday when the deer was first spotted on the north side of town.

The moose made its way through the city, passing a baseball field, a church and a high school.

Powell County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher Jen Lee says authorities had been concerned the animal would join runners in a track meet that had been going on at the time.

She says two police officers and a deputy eventually rounded up the moose and let it go outside the city.

No one was injured.
