Wild Moose Seen Less Than a Mile From “Moose on the Loose” Deli
For a long time, there were few moose sightings in Upstate NY. It wasn't until the 1980's that they made their return to the region. As of 2018, an estimated 600 - 700 moose live in the Adirondacks, according to the New York State DEC (Petrequin, News 10). Typically found in forestry, it's no surprise one was spotted in Warren County this week, but the name of a shop nearby is freakishly on the nose...
Below, see the footage captured by Warren County Municipal Center's Security Cameras:
Someone commented "He is in the Christmoose spirit!", and I'd say that's pretty accurate. I mean, just look at those happy trots. I just wish there were sound so we could hear the clip clops of its hooves!
So what the moose walked by the Warren County Municipal Center? Well, just 0.8 of a mile North is a deli so aptly named "Moose on the Loose Deli"! I'm convinced the owner is psychic and has been waiting for this moment for years in the making. Serving quality homemade sandwiches, wraps, paninis, and much more since 2016, this eatery is located inside the Adirondack Outlet Mall. They also have a second Lake George store on Canada Street, just off Route 9. Visit their website here.
Partnering with the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Cornell University the Biodiversity Research Institute, and the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Adirondack Program, the DEC is asking for your help to protect the Adirondack moose. If you spot a moose around the area, they want you to fill out this form. They will better be able to focus their conservation efforts if they know which areas moose are frequenting. Help keep this majestic creature safe!
