#GlobalNews: “Moose invades Banjo Bowl, messes up traffic – Winnipeg”
WINNIPEG – A wayward moose caused a monster traffic disruption for those heading to the Banjo Bowl on Saturday.
The moose was first spotted on Friday in the Wildwood area, off of Pembina Highway.
By Saturday, it had been spotted at a couple of spots around the University of Manitoba — at the Fisheries and Oceans Canada building at 501 University Crescent, and the Queen Bee Hotel at 2615 Pembina Highway, among other spots.
Shortly after 1pm, the moose had made its way into the fields near Investors Group Field. Winnipeg Police then shut down Chancellor Matheson Road so conservation officers could attempt to corral the moose.
As a result of all this, many people were late getting to the game, which was almost delayed.
The moose was tranquilized just before the 2pm kickoff.
