CALGARY — An antlered midnight-rambler is a bit of a social media star after casually walking through a Calgary light-rail transit station.

Calgary Transit says a moose showed up on its closed-circuit television cameras early this morning as it ambled along a pedestrian overpass near the tracks.

The transit station is in the city's northwest near the Bow River valley.

Sherri Zickefoose, a Calgary Transit spokeswoman, says there weren't any people around and staff believe the moose just hoofed along its way.

She says it's not unusual to se critters such as dogs and cats on their camera footage, but seeing the moose was a first.

Staff uploaded an image of the urban ungulate on social media.

"It is exceptionally rare, and we were really happy to share this occurrence on Twitter to give our customers a morning smile and make their commute a happier one," Zickefoose said.

"It is getting a lot of attention."
