Man Calls Police To Report Moose On Roof

(AP) It may have looked like Christmas outside, but Ward Nostdahl says it wasn't reindeer he heard clomping on his roof. Nostdahl called police to report a moose on the roof of his hillside home northwest of Minot.

He said he first saw the moose lying next to his garage door Wednesday afternoon. Game Warden Alan Howard said he and his colleagues chased it into a neighbor's yard but it came back to Nostdahl's home. Nostdahl called them back after he heard it on the roof.

Howard said Nostdahl's earth house is built into a hill, making it easy for the young moose to step up on the roof. The animal had come back down by the time Howard got there, and he said he was able to chase it off the property. He said it headed north.
