ENTIAT, Chelan County (AP) — Leave the moose alone. That’s the advice the state Fish and Wildlife Department is giving to residents of Entiat.
The Wenatchee World reports a young moose has been hanging out around town for two weeks and resting on lawns.
Wildlife Sgt. Dan Klump says cooler weather usually triggers moose to move on and agents are hoping this one soon travels up the Entiat Valley.
If there’s a confrontation with humans, agents would have to tranquilize the moose and relocate it — a major operation that’s traumatic for the animal.
There’s a Twitter photo of the moose resting on a lawn in the city.

ENTIAT, Chelan County — A wildfire near Entiat may have been started by a father and son shooting at exploding targets.
The Chelan County sheriff’s office says the Forest Service is investigating Sunday’s fire in the Mud Creek area.
The Wenatchee World reports flames spread to 120 acres in about an hour and required 60 firefighters, three engines and a helicopter to control.
Exploding targets violate a burn ban. A spokesman for firefighters, Mick Mueller, says the shooters could be held responsible for the fire suppression costs.
