Ottawa Police confirm they had to shoot a large moose after it charged a police officer around 3 pm Saturday afternoon. Initially the moose was spotted on Montreal Road, just east of the downtown core around 11 am. By noon time, Ottawa Police say the moose has been contained but somehow the animal got loose and was later located around Blair Road and Ogilvie. Attempts by the police were unsuccessful at containing it for a second time when it charged at the officer and the animal was shot dead. It has since been removed from the area.

it is not confirmed but the moose could have been a victim of Friday's storm that hit the region and wandered into city limits.
