MAGNETAWAN – A moose caused quite a stir in Magnetawan over the weekend.
A cow moose was seen wandering the streets of the village over the course of Saturday and Sunday.
“It was going up and down town stopping at vehicles and licking the grills of vehicles,” said Magnetawan Fire Chief Dean Butticci.
“There was a mixed opinion around town. Half were thinking it was a public safety issue and half were thinking it was just a friendly moose.”
The moose, who locals affectionately named “Maggie,” meandered her way throughout the town over the course of Saturday, walking near the local school, and stopping off to eat plants in random yards.
