It’s common to spot moose in Connecticut; they’re often traveling from Canada and can end up in northern parts of the state.
Last year, fire and police crews came to the rescue to save a moose that became stuck in a fence in Barkhamsted.
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection urges the public to report moose sightings to the DEEP Wildlife Division here.
