Stephen: Moose runs loose on University of North Dakota football field
On Tuesday morning, University of North Dakota police discovered that a loose moose had wandered onto the football team’s practice field, where it had plenty of room to run without fear of being tackled. The moose was intentionally confined to the field for several hours before local zoo officials helped capture it and release it back into the wild. As for North Dakota’s team, they had to find another field to practice for Saturday’s game against rival North Dakota State in Fargo.
I always felt that a school year had an asterisk next to it if a moose didn’t run by someday. Clearly, Newfoundland and Labrador is a place unto itself.
