According to police, the Ottawa moose died after what they thought was a successful relocation yesterday. The young, female moose was seen roaming around an Orléans suburb on Tuesday morning. The moose was captured, tranquilized and transported safely away from the neighborhood, but later succumbed to what police say is “stress and exhaustion” caused by the incident.\nThe moose was first noticed in a residential area of Orléans at approximately 7:20 AM yesterday morning, catching the attention of residents and commuters. The public was warned to stay indoors and away from the creature, as not to agitate or aggravate the young moose.\nRoad closures were promptly put in place to protect the public as the moose explored the neighborhood, but residents weren’t afraid to take pictures of the animal and share them across social media.\nJust before 10 AM, Ottawa Police tweeted that the moose had been successfully relocated and was beginning to wake up from her sedation.\nThe young moose has been relocated to the Larose Forest east of the city. She is starting to wake up and will be doing moosey-things again before too long. Thanks to everyone for their cooperation this morning in helping to keep her calm. @NCC_CCN @OttawaBylaw pic.twitter.com/9NLT3oQDoO— Ottawa Police (@OttawaPolice) June 4, 2019\nThis is the second time in two years that a moose has been found wandering the streets of Ottawa. Last year, a moose had to be euthanized after sustaining injuries from a collision with a car on the Queensway.\nDespite initial reports seeming positive, many Twitter users showed concern for the young moose in Orléans.\nBe careful out there everyone! Remember the last time a #moose was running around #ottawa! We don't want another one of these majestic animals put down!! #ottnews https://t.co/TFRPImvafX— Dave Nelson🎙️ (@davenelsononair) June 4, 2019\nIt’s awesome that we have loose moose problems in Ottawa, but not awesome that they get merc’d for it.

In a tweet they said "Our officers along with @NCC_CCN officers, provided oxygen, water and care to the moose until she adjusted to her new environment. Unfortunately, the moose appears to have succumbed to the stress and exhaustion caused by this incident."\nOur officers along with @NCC_CCN officers, provided oxygen, water and care to the moose until she adjusted to her new environment.

You were telling the public you were relocating a moose that found its way on the the highway then it was found out later than the moose was just killed. This is ridiculous.— GinaRae Giovannini (@GinaRaeGiovanni) June 4, 2019\nMany Canadians on Twitter were asking whether the police were the best authority for these situations, with some people questioning whether or not police officers are the best qualified to deal with animal-related incidents at all.\nAnother moose dead after being "helped" by "experts"... perhaps you're just not doing something right????— Tania Calv (@TDCalv) June 4, 2019\nThis could have been carried out better (calming her so she was not stressed.)— james’ one love 🐝🐝 (@bloodlinejamess) June 4, 2019\nWhat happened? Are the @NCC_CCN officers very experienced in this situations? Was the drug given to moose the right one? Stress and exhaustion sounds kinda odd... Poor moose 💔— pat pattyib♜ (@pattyib) June 4, 2019\nHave authorities consulted with experts on proper way to relocate moose & the proper dose of tranquilizer? Shouldn’t animals tranquilized b taken to a facility for observation before being moved & released into a new environment? She should have been observed to make sure ok— IsabellaLabradorIssy (@IsabellaLabIssy) June 4, 2019\nMoose do not relocate well. They live within same 10 mile radius where they r born their entire lives. U are removing them from their food &water source, calves, territory.Relocation is not necessarily best option for any wildlife. Only relocate if only other option is euthzn— IsabellaLabradorIssy (@IsabellaLabIssy) June 4, 2019\nWhile the public is debating the handling of this situation one thing is certain, moose pose a huge risk to the public, especially on the roads. Given their enormous size, if a car was to collide with a moose, the driver could sustain serious and life-threatening injuries.
