Wildlife flees Canada flooding

Wild animals, including elk and moose, were seen in large numbers on the highway along the St. John River in eastern New Brunswick province fleeing THE WORST FLOODING IN 35 YEARS, authorities said Saturday. Swollen by heavy rains and melting ice packs that accumulated over the winter, the river burst out of its bank on April 28 in several areas of the province, sweeping away homes but with no reports of injuries. The downtown area of the provincial capital, Fredericton, closed down on Wednesday. Hundreds of homes and buildings were flooded along the long river, which flows south into the Atlantic, and some 800 people were forced into Red Cross refugee shelters. While floodwaters were receding in the north of New Brunswick and Fredericton, in the south the river is expected to crest Sunday or Monday
