Moose Spotted In Cedar County

Posted: Updated:

 

There's a moose on the loose in Cedar County.

A local farmer spotted the moose on his property at around seven this morning. He called a Cedar County conservation officer.
     
Then, word traveled quickly in the county with a population of just around 18,400. Some residents say they searched for an hour, others until sundown and that they'll be back tomorrow.
     
They say this is the first time they've headed out to track down a moose in this area.

"When I saw it, I really didn't think that's what I really saw," Laura Baker said. "I didn't really tell anybody because I thought no, there's really not moose in Iowa."

Conservationists say the moose likely traveled here up north in Minnesota or Canada.
