Fish & Wildlife are actively trying to relocate the animals and will continue to monitor the area to ensure these animals move along there way away from the rural area.

Release from Fish and Wildlife :

Urban Moose Information

Natural areas that form a part of a wildlife corridor exist in our communities, with many species travelling through at any given time. While many animals have readily adapted to life in the city, it is important to know what to do when you encounter them.

• Normally, moose are not aggressive; however, a moose that is stressed, a bull moose in the fall rut, or a cow moose protecting her young may be easily provoked into an attack, which is a risk to individual and public safety.

• Keep children and animals inside until the moose has moved on.

• To help prevent a possible confrontation, do not allow your dog to harass the moose and do not try to scare the moose off by yelling or throwing things.

• Do not try to scare off moose by yelling or throwing things.

• If a moose is in your yard, ensure escape routes are kept clear, don’t close gates or block its escape and ensure the curtains are drawn on patio doors and large windows so the moose doesn’t mistake them for escape routes.

• If the moose is blocking a route you need, try to find another way around or wait for it to leave. Moose can be attracted to willow bushes and shrubbery in residential areas.

• If you are charged by a moose, run away and try to find a car, tree or building to hide behind.

• Be mindful of movement on the sides of the road at these times. If you have a passenger, ask them to watch for moose and other wildlife.

• If you see a moose ahead of you while driving, slow down, be alert for more animals and be prepared to stop.

Tranquilizing and relocating multiple large ungulates such as moose is reserved for cases of extreme public safety concerns

• By taking simple precautions, Albertans can reduce the risk of human-wildlife conflict in urban settings. (More info here:

If a moose is posing a risk to public safety or has difficulty returning to the wild because of roads, buildings or other significant barriers, contact Fish and Wildlife on the Report a Poacher line at 1-800-642-3800.
