SNAPPED: Moose makes appearance at Owen Bircher Park

WILSON, Wyo. — A mangy moose joined in on the fun at Owen Bircher Park in Wilson yesterday afternoon, April 29, leaving park visitors captive on the playground gym for about 45 minutes according to Amelia Nolan, local chef and nanny, who was at the park yesterday and took the video.

Nolan joked, “It was the worst game of lava ever played.” She and a few other parents kept the kids on the playset while the Moose inspected the park. The moose was wearing a collar, numbered 18.
