CANTON – It wasn’t an oversized bunny or a life-altering religious experience, but residents were excited to see a young moose Easter morning.

Following sightings in Winchester, Barkhamsted, New Hartford and other parts of Canton, several residents witnessed a young, male moose in a field and wooded area on Olson Road, near the intersection of East Hill Road on Easter Sunday. Several more sightings followed in the next few days.

Wildlife experts say it is not uncommon to see young moose by themselves in the spring.

To see what a local expert and a state Department of Energy and Environmental Department biologist had to say about the moose in Connecticut, see this week’s Valley Press.
