Moose shows up at German office canteen

A young moose stands behind a window in an administration building of Siemens in Dresden, Germany, Monday Aug. 25, 2014. The two to three year old animal had already been seen in Radebeul near Dresden on the weekend. It is believed to have moved from the north, possibly Poland, to the Dresden Elbe Valley. Police are trying to capture a moose on the loose in the eastern German city of Dresden. A spokesman for Dresden police says the young bull walked into the offices of German industrial giant Siemens on Monday and got stuck behind a glass wall.

BERLIN (AP) -- Maybe he got hungry?

A moose on the loose in the eastern German city of Dresden evaded capture before getting stuck inside an office building, tantalizingly close to the canteen.

A spokesman for Dresden police says the young bull walked into the building housing German industrial giant Siemens shortly before lunchtime Monday.

Marko Laske says officers and wildlife spent six hours trying to shoo the moose into a container but eventually had to resort to using a tranquilizer gun after he refused to follow orders.

The animal, likely to have come from neighboring Poland, will be released back into the wild.
