Goooal! A moose spent a day hanging out on a soccer field in Central New York.

Moose aren't uncommon in the Adirondacks but to see one in Central New York is rare. This time of year they are wandering further than normal during the breeding season, or rut.

The community came out to see a moose hanging out at the park in Westernville. It traveled by the fire department onto the soccer field where it didn't seem to mind all the attention.

Report Moose

If you see a moose, you're asked to report it to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). They are conducting a multi-year research project to obtain information on the status of New York State's moose population, the health of the moose, and the factors that influence moose survival and reproductive rate.
