Provo Police responded to a call Friday morning of a wild animal making a bit of a “moose-stake” by losing its way into The Riverwoods shopping center.

According to the Provo Police Facebook page, the wild moose had spent ample time wondering around businesses at The Riverwoods shopping center before laying down in front of a business. Moose can occasionally become aggressive, which concerned some shoppers and residents.

According to the Facebook page, Provo Police then contacted the Utah Department of Wildlife Resources (DNR) to help return the moose to its proper home. The Facebook page states that a safe parameter was able to be established around the moose. It was then tranquilized and transported back to the wild.

Provo Police say no one was injured during the event.
