Moose-on-the-loose mingle with Muscovites

Three moose have been wandering freely around the streets of Moscow today, thrilling local residents.

­One moose stood right outside a local police station, while the others set up camp in front of a residential block in Sokolniki. Officers patrolled the area to ensure the safety of residents and the animals.

It is thought the moose escaped from an animal sanctuary next to Sokolniki Park. Several attempts were made to drive the animals back, but they kept returning. The latest reports suggest they have now gone home.
