A moose got some help Tuesday morning when she wandered into downtown Ludlow. 

According to the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife, the female moose was “relocated” from the backyard of Overhead Door Company. 

“Although moose sightings aren’t usually cause for alarm or intervention, this moose wasn’t able to leave the area on her own,” the agency wrote on Facebook. “Our biologists determined the safest plan was to immobilize and relocate the moose to a forested area nearby with the assistance of the Massachusetts Environmental Police.”

MassWildlife said the moose was safely relocated.
