Police warn public to leave wild animals alone after baby moose gets separated from mother
ALEXANDRIA — Police are warning the public not to touch or chase wild animals after coming in contact with a baby moose over the weekend.
"The reason for this post is to remind people that no matter how cute baby wild animals are, they are still WILD ANIMALS," the Alexandria Police Department wrote on Facebook.
Officers called New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, who assured them that the best course of action was to leave the moose alone and allow his mother to get him after he was temporarily separated from her.
Police say if you are ever unsure about what to do with a wild animal, to leave them alone and call Fish and Game at (603) 271-2461.
