The cause of a moose's death at a local wildlife exhibit is expected to be known by the end of the week.
A seven-year-old bull moose died suddenly at the Chippewa Wildlife Park late last month. The animal was brought to the wildlife exhibit by the Ministry of Natural Resources in May 2006 when it was about two weeks old.
It had been orphaned after its mother had been struck and killed by a motor vehicle.
The moose received ongoing vet care as required and earlier this summer a veterinarian determined the moose had worms.
City officials say the condition was common among moose and caribou in captivity.
The city says the animal had received ample food and water during this time.
The care of this moose was already the focus of media attention earlier this summer after park users began complaining on social media that the animal appeared to be malnourished and mistreated.
