BUCHANAN COUNTY (KWWL) -

A deputy with the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office confirms that their office has gotten a report of a moose sighting in Buchanan County.

The deputy also says that officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources are aware of the reported sighting.

A caller told KWWL that she saw a moose near Highway 20 outside of Jesup.

Moose sightings in Iowa are strange, as they don't typically live any further south than northern Minnesota.

Officials say if you see the animal, remember to be cautious and admire it from a distance.
