April 19 (UPI) -- Police in Maine warned drivers Wednesday morning to beware of "heavy moose traffic" stemming from a moose that decided to cross a bridge.
Belfast Police said the moose was seen about 8 a.m. crossing the Veteran's Memorial Bridge in Belfast while walking along Route 1.
"You may experience heavy moose traffic on the Passagassawakeag River Veterans Memorial bridge this morning," Belfast Police Sgt. John Gibbs wrote in a Facebook post.
Gibbs said the moose was later spotted on a beach in Northport and wandering around Bayside, which is about 5 miles south of Belfast.
Gibbs urged drivers to remain aware of potential moose encounters and said police will continue to monitor the animal in the hopes of preventing any car-on-moose crashes.
