Moose on the loose

SALISBURY — A moose with aspirations has been visiting area independent schools in recent weeks. First a student at The Hotchkiss School spotted the leggy mammal taking a swim in Lake Wononscopomuc and took a photo.

Drivers are reminded that moose are extremely tall and therefore can be very dangerous when encountered on roads, especially on misty early mornings.
