Moose Attracts Crowd After Wandering Into Man's Backyard

When Lloyd Readman of Orillia, Canada, looked out his window, he didn't expect to see a 600-lb. moose -- along with a slew of spectators taking photos of it. But that he did.

Luckily, the moose was extremely calm and didn't move much throughout the ordeal.

Nonetheless, her presence was the cause of two nearby schools going on lockdown -- just as a precaution.
