Moose Spotted in Farmington Valley

A Patch reader shared some photos of a moose taken along the Farmington River.

A moose was spotted along the Farmington River in Collinsville Thursday morning and photographed from the Collinsville Canoe and Kayak parking lot by manager Melissa Post. 

"It was so cool," she said. "You go to all these other places — like Maine and Vermont — and you never see them and there’s one right there in your back yard." 

Store personnel said they've also received reports of sightings along the river in the past day or two. 

Canton Patch Editor John Fitts was able to locate the moose earlier this afternoon and capture more great photos.

Would be interested in hearing from the DEP as to its collar which, one would presume, is for tracking.

I thought the same. Wonder where this moose wandered in from - it would be interesting to know more. Maybe the DEEP will let us know.
