GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A moose on the loose on the University of North Dakota campus has been returned to the wild.

University police say the wayward moose was released in a field near Grand Forks after wandering into Memorial Stadium on campus Tuesday morning.

UND spokesman David Dodds said the gates to the football stadium were closed to confine the moose to the practice field until it could be safely removed and released.

University police tweeted Tuesday evening that the moose’s 12-hour ordeal was over and that the Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton helped relocate the interloper.
