Game and Parks Report Moose Sighting Near Wayne, Dixon

DIXON – Nebraska Game and Parks officials say there have been multiple sightings of a young bull moose throughout parts of northeast Nebraska.

Game and Parks officials say last week a report came in of a moose sighting south of Platte Center, and later that week near Wayne in northeast Nebraska. Most recently the young moose was spotted near Dixon on Tuesday and the Game and Parks are monitoring the moose’s activity.

Local New Century Environmental Biologist Chris Shank says as moose populations continue to expand, young bulls are sometimes driven out of there normal home range.  Shank also says moose do not have a fear for humans,and urges anyone who comes across the animal to keep a safe distance.
