Moose strolls through Penticton neighbourhood

A Penticton resident waiting for a bus was greeted by a large creature on Wednesday

A Penticton teen casually waiting for her bus to school, in a quiet neighbourhood, got a bit of a surprise greeting on Wednesday morning.

A moose decided to take Bracewell Drive for a stroll before cutting through a backyard and knocking down a fence.

Rayah Carr was shocked to see the large animal in neighbourhood and apparently so were many on social media who commented they were surprised to see a moose so close to the city.

Check out the encounter here.
