The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) had an unusual visitor last week.

On the evening of April 11, CBSA cameras captured a moose entering Canada from the United States and approaching the Woodstock, N.B. port of entry.

Border Services officers say they monitored the moose through the night to ensure the safety of travellers.

The moose stayed at the port overnight Tuesday and wandered back across the border on its own Wednesday morning.

CBSA says it’s not unusual to have wildlife near the port of entry, but it is unusual to have a moose come so close and stay for such an extended period of time.
