DEAD MOOSE - East End antics

A moose found wandering in the East End was killed this morning. Portland police say one and possibly two moose came ashore on East End Beach this morning. One ended up in Back Cove, where it was scared off into woods near Payson Park by the sound of emergency vehicles' sirens, as well as some bean bags shot at it.

A short time later, another moose - or possibly the same one - was spotted back near Munjoy Hill, where it was hit by a tow truck and severely injured. Portland police say the moose was so badly injured that a state wildlife biologist and a state game warden agreed to "euthanize" the animal, by shooting it.
