Nebraska wildlife officials are cautioning people to stay away from a moose that has been spotted roaming through eastern Nebraska.

The bull moose was spotted northwest of Columbus on September 26th, and there were later sightings near Wayne and near Dixon on Tuesday.

It’s rare for moose to venture into Nebraska.

Karie Decker, interim administrator for Game and Parks’ wildlife division, says when the moose encounters urban areas, it likely will move onto more rural parts of the region.

It’s illegal to hunt moose in Nebraska.
