Moose drowns after people crowding to take pictures scare it into water


A moose has drowned in Vermont after a crowd of people taking photographs scared the animal into the water.

Vermont wildlife officials said the moose is believed to have already swum several kilometres to cross Lake Champlain from New York state, which borders the west side of the lake.

When it reached the shore at South Hero – part of Grand Isle in the middle of the lake, it caught the attention of bystanders who reportedly crowded around the animal while it was resting.

It then re-entered the water and drowned of exhaustion.
