(Des Moines, Iowa) –  Officials with the Iowa D-N-R say a moose that had been seen Wednesday in Spirit Lake is believed to have fallen through the ice on East Lake Okoboji and drowned. The D-N-R says the moose had been swimming in Spirit Lake and Marble Lake since late November and came from Northern Minnesota.

Arnolds Park Okoboji Fire & Rescue was expected to try and pull the moose out of the lake so it can be taken to Iowa State University for study.
