The moose remains loose. It’s now been four days since that bull moose was first spotted in the heart of Billings and he does not seem to be in a hurry to leave.
There have been numerous sightings and run-ins with the big beast since Monday.
But for the first time we are seeing surveillance video from a local non-profit near Grand Avenue that shows the moose lounging behind and then charging past a man sitting on a bench.
One of the latest sightings of moose is right around the Alliance Resource Center on 15th Street West and Avenue D.
The irrigation ditch is about four to five blocks north and that’s where the moose has camped out.
A man was sitting right on the bench and the moose came right through between him and a post.
Security video at the Alliance Resource Center shows the moose at around 4:00 Monday afternoon.
“We had no idea we’d had a visitor on Monday,” said Sue Bailey, the center’s director. “We actually had two. One was a nice gentleman sitting on our bench enjoying that beautiful day that we had Monday. The other was a probably a young moose.”
Workers came back on Tuesday after the holiday and spotted some blood before seeing the video.
“Our building manager was going to check and clean it up,” Bailey said. “And led him to be curious and he checked our security footage out.”
Bailey it appears the moose came down 15th Street West and made a right turn and headed down Avenue D.
“Comes up between these trees, kind of does around about here a loop,” Bail
