There's a new social media star in Minnesota: a moose named Rutt


Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

There's a new social media star in Minnesota, a moose nicknamed Rutt. He's got over 26,000 people tracking them on a Facebook group and chronicling his every move. It's believed that Rutt traveled from South Dakota to Minnesota. And his fans sometimes worry about his safety when he's tracked crossing streets. Now, no one quite knows where Rutt wants to be going. But it's not about the destination, Rutt. It's the journey. Just don't fall into a rut, Rutt, if you get what I mean.
