Moose crashes through Dover-Foxcroft storefront

Written by

DOVER-FOXCROFT - Police officers often get called to respond to break-ins but it's not every day they get called to one where the suspect is a moose.

Dover-Foxcroft Police Chief Ryan Reardon said the moose was spotted walking down Park Street a little after 1 a.m. Friday.


He said it apparently got spooked and crashed through the window of an empty storefront on Main Street.


Chief Reardon said it wandered around inside for a few minutes and came back out the window just as law enforcement arrived on the scene.

The chief said the suspect in the break-in is not in custody.


The moose was last seen leaving east Main Street.
