(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A number of citizens noticed a moose swimming in water at the Marina late this morning.
The moose was trying to climb up the rocks and onto shore, but was unsuccessful after several attempts.
Thunder Bay Fire Rescue responded to the scene, and were watching the moose to ensure the safety of the moose and citizens.
Thunder Bay Police Service showed up shortly afterwards to assist. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry have been alerted.
The moose eventually did make its way onto land, at the grain elevator near the Great West Timber property.
Citizens are advised to avoid the area and allow the animal to find its way back to its home.
