(9:53 a.m.) BOZEMAN - A moose is on the loose in Bozeman this morning.
At around 9:45 a.m., wildlife officials were at 20th Avenue and Dickerson Street, attempting to keep the young bull moose from going into traffic. The moose is estimated to be about 1 ½ years old.
Wildlife officials believe this may be the same moose that was spotted in Belgrade yesterday.
