Moose Makes Return Visit

BUCKSPORT — A juvenile male moose must have gotten a taste for the city life because it returned to town Aug. 3.

The moose was last spotted in Bucksport July 26, when it caused a traffic jam on Route 1. It was sedated and released in Orland.

Its reappearance last week was reported by someone at Bucksport Square Apartments. The moose was eventually cornered in a fenced area at a nearby construction site and tranquilized.

“He was transported even further away,” said Bucksport Police Sgt. David Winchester.


Melissa Alvarez, 27, Bucksport, warrant.

James Ahearn, 22, Dedham, warrant.

Tanya Gilley, 24, Dedham, warrant.

Troy Welch, 30, Bangor, warrant.


A bystander reported seeing an adult strike a child on Main Street Aug. 1.

Police were unable to locate the individuals involved.

Phone Threats

Police are investigating an Aug. 7 report of threatening text messages.


An apparently intoxicated woman causing a disturbance on Mill Street Aug. 5 was transported to the hospital.


John Ohara, 30, Waltham, Mass., summoned for speeding, 56 miles per hour in a 30-mph zone on Route 1.
