100 Years Ago: 1923

A cow moose has been thru South Paris and several of the surrounding towns recently being seen several times. One night Mr. Moore, a night watchman,  encountered her on Main Street. The moose was coming through the lawns of Charles R. Dunham and Miss Hannah Wright and was not in the least afraid. Mr. Moore beat a hasty retreat to Mr. Dunham’s plaza. The moose took a look at him and turned onto the concrete paving, going down to an open lot where she disappeared. A cow moose was seen on the same day in the Whittemore district.
