Caribou Police Officer Mark Gahagan said that the department has received complaints about the animal being in some people’s yards and had heard about a video posted on Facebook of local residents petting the animal as it lay in a snowbank in a Caribou neighborhood.

“We moved it out,” Gahagan said, “and then it would leave and then it would come back into a parking lot and lay down.”

He strongly discouraged people from interacting with the moose.<<<
