Police say 100 people chased moose in Pullman

PULLMAN, Wash. — Pullman Police say 100 people tried to chase a moose on the northeast hill Monday night. 

The incident happened just before 8 p.m. and involved people running after and chasing the moose in a car. 

Police asked people to be respectful of local wildfire, which sometimes wanders into city limits. 

“NEVER chase or approach a wild animal,” the department said in a Facebook post. 

Moose are not typically aggressive, but can quickly become aggressive when harassed. They are also known to become aggressive during the rut in late September and October.
