I've read where one of the signs of brainworm is they tend to walk in circles, don't know how they judged him to have brainworm, but it's a shame that he had to be dispatched.

HM, during the video, the moose does walk in circles near the flag-pole and even walks into the pole at one point,
earlier in the vide he does a little staggering too so there were good clear signs that this moose had something going on,
I don't like seeing them put down but I think the game wardens did the right thing in this case.

Whoa nellie! I would side with the wardens on this one.

Keep running fast GFdeputy. It would be rough if one of those got a hoof on you.
