Inquisitive Bear, Moose Pay Visits to Bangor, Bath

BATH, Me,. Oct. 6 (AP) — A mild-mannered moose ambled into town today, visited a shipyard and then wearily plodded back to the woods.

Work was virtually suspended for 20 minutes while shipbuilders gathered around the animal. Finally a shipyard guard shooed the moose back toward more familiar scenery.
