A moose wandering around Otter Tail County caused quite a stir in the greater Pelican Rapids area last week, moose-image1between about 4 and 6 p.m. Oct. 12.  Several motorists spotted a lone moose near Elizabeth along Highway 59. It may well  be the same animal that was reported on Pebble Lake Golf Course near Fergus Falls, on Oct. 10.

These photos were taken by Cassie Kaste, of the Elizabeth area.  Also spotting the same animal, just south of Elizabeth, was Jean Kulsrud, St. Paul, but a seasonal resident in the rural Pelican area.

“It sauntered right out in front of us,” said Kulsrud. “It was a very majestic sight.”
