By CBC News Ottawa, September 18, 2017

Police say they were forced to shoot and kill a moose that had been wandering through Petawawa, Ont., Monday after it charged a conservation officer.

At around 8:30 a.m., officers with the Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police received a report of a bull moose roaming through a local subdivision.

Over the morning, the moose made its way across Petawawa Boulevard, a busy main street, and gradually grew "distressed, exhausted and overheated," OPP said in a release.
