Moose on the Loose

I was just about threw the gate at work this morning and this is what I caught a glimpse of . I left the car in the middle of the driveway, door open and managed to get a few shots of a moose before she got away. I needn't have worried I would miss the shot, she was quite willing to hang about a bit, although she did use the trees a lot. The area she was in runs along the Cranbrook Golf Course fence, it actually is what they call the community forest........umph no wonder they run into so many problems around there.... after all the critters were there first. Anyhow to get back to the moose she finally came out of the trees and crossed a dirt road.
Sorry for the poor pics but she just kept going for the trees. After she crossed the road she seemed to get confused.....can't blame her she had me trying to chase her down with my camera and then there was a guy with his two dogs who apparently is the one that flushed her out of the bush. In the next pic you can see she starts running through the trees and then she 's out in the open and really doesn't know which way to go.
Ahead of her is the main road down into town and lots of traffic, if she goes to the right she ends up in the college parking lot and that's what she did, someone chased her out of there and she was headed back into the forest and hopefully away from the people and all the other things that could have caused her some grief. I lost her in the trees probably a good thing, now she has nothing standing in her way.
