Many humans vacation by leaving town and go to the forest. Moose live in the forest so it makes sense they would vacation in town.

That's just what two moose did recently. Their destination? Buena Vista. While the moose did get a chance to do some sightseeing, these unusual tourists became instant celebrities.

There were a lot of photographs, perhaps requests for autographs, and close encounters for those not smart enough to know wild animals can be unpredictably dangerous.

All of that attention forced town officials to call Colorado Parks and Wildlife who encouraged the moose to return home before someone got hurt.
