More than an hour into the chase, [Officer Jeffrey] Bearce said, a man saw a moose come out of the woods. The animal apparently had been on the same path as LaCroix and contaminated the trail, Bearce said.
"They came across a moose out of the woods on Silvermount Street, and he contaminated the track across to Silver Street," Bearce said. "He was running in the same place the kid ran." [Source]
