Moose seen leisurely strolling across Maine golf course

LOVELL, Maine (AP) — A few rounds of golf were likely held up over the weekend as a moose leisurely strolled around a Maine golf course.

Onlooker Emily Poitras says the moose walked to the middle of one of the courses at a Lovell country club Sunday and stood there for around 5-10 minutes. It then resumed its slow walk across the course.

Poitras called game wardens as she had seen the same moose around the course a few times over the course of the week.

Officials told her they weren’t alarmed and guessed the moose was likely trying to molt, a process where moose shed their heavy winter fur for a lighter summer coat.
