    Police Keeping Eye on Moose Roaming Around Maine Park

    Maine police say they've been keeping an eye on a moose that's been roaming around a Pittsfield park.

    Pittsfield Police Chief Peter Bickmore said Wednesday "we've got a Bullwinkle on the loose," and that police were dealing with the large animal for most of the morning.

    The Bangor Daily News reports the moose was first spotted around 8 a.m. -- taking the mound at Manson Park's baseball field.

    A police officer shooed the moose away, but it later returned to wandering back and forth throughout the park for most of the morning.
