There is a moose on the loose on the eastbound 417 in Ottawa this morning. Well, no longer on the loose, he is hemmed in by police cruisers (as if that would detain him if he really wanted to leave) until wildlife authorities can get there to tranquilize and remove him. He was first spotted running on the 417 around 630 this morning. From the pictures I have seen, the moose appears to be a young male. Reports say he is slightly injured and will be taken somewhere to recuperate by the ministry of natural resources. Poor little (not really) guy, he must be terrified!

Only in Canada eh? Stay at home a little longer this morning if you are headed east, you won’t be getting anywhere fast! I was headed that way to a garden, but will switch things up and head west instead.
