Moose on the loose
In June 2012, Wellesley residents reported sightings of a 600-pound moose racing through backyards and across streets.
Wellesley Police worked with Environmental Police to track the moose for hours from the area of Reeds Pond, where the moose reportedly went swimming, to Lexington Road and Shirley Road.
The wild interloper managed to evade the authorities and the search was eventually called off. The large animal remains at large.
