BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed the rare sightings of a moose in the Nebraska Panhandle.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the moose has been spotted several times in the past several weeks by people in the North Platte River Valley. It was last reported in Morrill County.
The commission says moose are not common in Nebraska but sometimes are seen in the Panhandle. Wildlife biologists suspect the moose wandered over from Wyoming.
