The animals are out and about in Colorado. It seems that the moose have been spotted more and more lately.

The latest sighting in Fort Collins was in the North Shields Ponds Natural Area, a 54 acre natural area with a 1.5 mile trail system in a figure 8 configuration.

A Fort Collins resident was with their daughter and dog when a moose crossed the trail ahead of where they were.

This isn't the first time moose were spotted near Fort Collins, recently someone captured a video of a moose with a baby calf at Red Feather Lakes.

Check out the video of the moose at the North Shields Ponds area below.

Ran into this handsome fellow while at the North Shields Ponds area this afternoon. I had no idea moose hang out in town. My daughter (and dog) and I felt so fortunate to see him. from r/FortCollins

The natural area is open 5:00 a.m. 11:00 p.m. daily. The North Shields Ponds Natural Area parking lot is on the west side of road on Shields St, north of Shields and Vine.
