Sandy McBride of Halfmoon snapped this photo Friday morning of a moose resting in the grass along Bent Grass Drive in the Fairways of Halfmoon development. McBride said the moose drew a crowd of curious onlookers, and she heard that the moose was spotted in Hemstreet Park, across the Hudson River from Mechanicville, on Thursday evening.

Rich Jones, who lives in the neighborhood, said he watched the moose cross Johnson Road, Bent Grass and then Staniak Road. It came back across Staniak and made itself comfortable for a couple of hours. (Photo by Sandy McBride)
Two children look at the moose relaxing in the top of the photo. Sandy McBride, who took the picture, said: "Funny thing was that the school bus went through and the driver stopped so the kids could see them. They were all screaming and yelling and moose just laid there ignoring them."

Why did the moose cross the road? To get to the other side. The juvenile moose, with sheriff’s deputies on hand if needed, crosses Staniak Road in Halfmoon on his way from Fairways to Staniak Hollow around 11 a.m. Friday. (Sandy McBride photo)
