First recorded moose sighting ever in Mount Rainier National Park

The moose was also the first ever spotted in southwest Washington.

From KING-5 TV News, Seattle:

A moose was spotted for the first time in Mount Rainier National Park Thursday, according to the National Park Service.

The moose was caught on camera by a remote-sensing camera on Sunrise Road, said Greg Dudgeon with the National Park Service. 

This is also the first moose spotted in southwestern Washington in general, the park service said. Previously, the farthest southwest a moose was seen in Washington state was near Stevens Pass in 2009, according to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).
