Fans spotted a different kind of four-legged visitor yesterday at the Saratoga Race Course when a wayward moose wandered onto the grounds, reports the Albany Times-Union reports. Dozens of surprised onlookers—most of whom had never seen a wild moose before, let alone one on a racetrack—gathered to see the young 500-pound female before wildlife officers tranquilized it and loaded it onto a trailer for release back into the wild.
"I wonder if she could beat the horses,” mused a Saratoga cop. “It would be a heck of a race. I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve never been on moose duty before.”
