A moose is on the loose in Fargo, and police really don't want people to look for it

The moose was spotted running around a golf course.

There's a moose wandering around Fargo, which has the police department asking motorists not to approach the animal and not try to find it.

"Please do not approach the moose. Do not seek the moose out in your vehicle," the Fargo Police Department tweeted Thursday morning. "We do not want the moose pushed into traffic or agitated in a residential neighborhood as this could endanger lives. Let him make his way back out of town peacefully." 

The PD said in a Facebook post that it's making this plea after seeing and hearing several people talking about trying to track down the moose, which has been spotted in South Fargo, including at the Prairieview Golf Course Thursday morning and running near a road.

Prairieview Golf Course told BMTN the moose was running around on the course for about 20 minutes. Thankfully, it didn't do any damage to the turf. 

Police said in the post that it isn't making any attempts to look for the moose nor push it out of town, adding that it consulted with North Dakota Game and Fish, noting "we feel it best to let the moose find its way out of town on its own" and that if you see the moose, leave it alone. 

"Moose can be aggressive, so we ask for people to give the moose space for your safety and the safety of the rest of the public," the post says. 

BMTN has reached out to North Dakota Game and Fish for more information.
