#MooseUpdate: The moose is laying down taking its typical midday college nap. We are still asking everyone to avoid the area so that the moose doesn't become stressed or panicked. #BestCopsAround #MooseWatch2019 pic.twitter.com/SsSs5p3BE2 University of North Dakota Police (@UNDPoliceDept) September 3, 2019
Sept. 3 (UPI) -- A moose that wandered onto the University of North Dakota campus ended up spending the day lounging inside the school's stadium, police said.
University police said Tuesday the moose wandered onto campus in Grand Forks about 8 a.m. and about a half hour later police had the animal contained inside Memorial Stadium.
Police said the moose apparently wandered into the stadium through a gate that had been left open for football practice and authorities decided to keep the animal inside until it can be safely escorted out of town in the evening, when traffic in the area is lighter.
Police tweeted video of the moose running laps on the football field before settling in for a "typical midday college nap."
A moose trotted into Memorial Stadium Tuesday morning and spent the rest of the day meandering around the stadium and snacking on bushes.

A moose once bit my football playing sister.
Who’s the moosiest moose we know?
Who’s the star of our favorite show?
M is for Merry - we’re merry, you see;
O is for Oh gosh, Oh golly, Oh gee;
S is for Super Swell family glee;
E is for Everything you want to be.
M - A - R - T - Y;
M - O - O - S - E.
What’s that spell?
(Hyuk! That’s me!)
"Sorry Folks, Football Field's closed....The Moose out front should've told ya."
He was looking for the hockey rink.
In Canada, protocol is to take a moose to Tim Horton’s before returning it to the wild.
I don’t know if they are so up on moose handling in the Dakotas.
Then the moose bit her.
She had to take a shower afterward.
Good. Magnificent animals.
Moose lips bit sis.
I remember when Bullwinkle won a football scholarship to “Whatsamatta U.”
I thought he was on the farkling squad.

“Hey Rock... watch me pull a rabbit outta muh hat!”
The moose is a girl.
She can’t make the team, except maybe as a kicker.
Can it kick? the Vikes could use a kicker.
