Norfolk, Neb. Patti Rakowsky didn’t wake up and see reindeer on Christmas Day, but it was close.

Rakowsky looked out a window of her home Monday near Battle
Creek and saw a moose. The young bull has been wandering in
northeast Nebraska for at least seven weeks, according to the
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

“We really don’t do a lot about an animal like that,” said Tom
Welstead, of the NGPC.

The moose is a fully protected animal in Nebraska, which means
fines can be assessed to those who kill it.

The last moose sighting in northeast Nebraska was about 10 years
ago, according to Welstead. That moose ultimately moved into
Kansas. More recently, a moose was sighted in western Nebraska.
That animal headed into Wyoming.
