SHERBROOKE, Que. — Police and wildlife officers caught a moose that had been on the loose in a Quebec shopping mall parking lot on Tuesday.

Police received 911 calls around 7 a.m. about the animal roaming around the town, two hours east of Montreal.

"They managed to block it with cruiser manoeuvers," said police spokesman Martin Carrier.

"We wanted to avoid having a large moose in rush hour."

Wildlife officers managed to sedate the moose, and they transported the animal away from populated areas."‹
