There’s a moose on the loose in eastern Iowa.
A farmer spotted the moose on his property near Stanwood in Cedar County early Tuesday morning. He called a county conservation officer.
Word traveled quickly in the county and people started searching for the moose. Some people were out until sundown and say that they’ll be back out searching Wednesday.
This is the first time they’ve tried to track down a moose in this area.
“When I saw it, I really didn’t think that’s what I really saw. I didn’t really tell anybody because I thought no, there’s really not moose in Iowa,” says photography Laura Baker.
Conservationists say the moose likely traveled to Iowa from Minnesota.
