A young moose that was spotted in Orléans Tuesday morning was safely tranquilized but died soon after from 'stress and exhaustion'.
Our officers along with @NCC_CCN officers, provided oxygen, water and care to the moose until she adjusted to her new environment.
Unfortunately, the moose appears to have succumbed to the stress and exhaustion caused by this incident. #ottnews https://t.co/3rkGhZz3qq
A photo from Geneviève Paré showed the moose in the area of Portobello Blvd. and Innes Rd. at around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Ottawa Police warned of possible road closures and urged people in the area to remain indoors to avoid startling the animal.
Police provided an update at around 10:45 a.m. to say the animal was tranquilized and will be released back in the wild.
Moose on the move in Orléans has been tranquilized and will be released. Annette Goodwin shared this pic with me, she came across the moose taking her kids to school. @ctvottawa pic.twitter.com/yo8sm2mQcv— LeahLarocque (@LeahCTV) June 4, 2019
