The moose was first spotted near the intersection of Gardenway Drive and Orchardview Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. Responding officers from the Ottawa Police Service and the National Capital Commission waited until the distressed animal had tired itself out and layed down before they tranquilized it and transported it to Larose Forest..

Despite the officers best efforts to help the moose adjust to its new surroundings by providing the animal with ozygen and water it died soon afterwards.

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.
