The Ottawa Police Service passed along the news of the animals passing in a tweet.

"Unfortunately, the moose appears to have succumbed to the stress and exhaustion caused by this incident," police tweeted.

This is the third time in the past four years that a moose had to be relocated after finding its way into Orléans. The other two were relocated to the wild without incidents.
