Meanwhile, in Minnesota…

Sgt. Bernie Mettler was called to the town of Aurora after residents reported a moose roaming the streets.

It had wondered in from a nearby wood, and at one point grew so exhausted that it sat itself down and appeared to fall asleep.

‘I have a hunch the moose got chased into town by the wolves,’ Mettler told Twin Cities. ‘He looked very tired. But I gave him a little help and then he got back up.’

Mettler managed to rouse the moose, herd it back into the woods, and finish the day with a unique story to tell.

The moose returned to its wolf-infested habitat, to fight another day.
