A moose on the loose in a quiet Florence neighborhood.

Elena Ciampa took a video of the moose walking around Fox Farms Road in Florence, but the first one to notice the moose was her dog.

"She's in the middle of the drive way, and she's just like "yip!". I look where she's looking and there's a moose right in front of my friends house" said Ciampa. "You know the feeling of, 'Ahh!' I dropped the poop."

Elena says she wasn't scared, but in 'awe'.

"He just sort of kept walking in front of the third neighbor, in front of their house, and on the grass," she said. 

It then walked down Fox Farms Road. 

"Then we saw him turnaround and come back up the street like I don't think I'm doing that."

She said the moose noticed her, but turned away.

"If he could talk, he would be like where can I go? You could tell he was just like looking where is my home," she said. "It's almost like a middle schooler, first day of sixth grade, like I'm lost in the building, where's my locker?"

After some time, Elena's neighbors came out to see what was going on.

"The first neighbors woke up and came out 'Ahh!' and their little girl said 'Woah, that's huge!'"

The rare sighting was unforgettable.

"He just sort of glided. It was amazing. I didn't even hear him! It just floated. It was like so fast but so gracefully and effortlessly, the way they move."

Police have not been able to locate the moose that was later spotted near the John F. Kennedy school on Bridge Road.
