BOULDER, Colo. -- A female moose visited the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder just before 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Boulder officials.

Police followed the moose until she wandered onto the Pearl Street Mall, near 13th and 14th streets, then they took action.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials advised police to haze the moose with bean bag rounds in an attempt to get the moose to head back home.

Boulder police warned a crowd of onlookers to not get too close to the animal for safety.

The moose was not fazed by multiple bean bag rounds shot into her back legs by police. She then ran into a resident's yard.

Boulder officials pounded on the fence to scare the animal, but it did not deter the moose.

Police said they shot another bean bag round into the animal's behind, causing her to run across Broadway.

Officers believed she then wandered far enough away from people.

Not sure on her whereabouts, officials said the moose was not spotted again Monday.

Police reminded the public to not approach wildlife because they can be dangerous and unpredictable when frightened.
