This is my hood.

Some facts about the Canadian moose:
1. If your bathroom scale shows you are about 300 pounds (135 kilos) then you weigh about a quarter of a moose.
2. They like to pretend they're blind.
3. They pshaw at people parked on the highway in little cars. Or snicker. Like they did to me. This morning. As they had a meeting. All four of them.
4. They don't give a shit if you're late.

I think Betty said the very same thing in the Archie comics once. ;)

Moose are so bloody inconsiderate that way.

Moose. The animal that you finally see in person and say, "Holy shit! They're big!"

Oh wow....we see moose in my area too, but I haven't seen 4 all together.
glad to know, since I am on a weight loss adventure (I use that word loosely) that I don't weigh anything near a moose.
comforting
rude how they just go phsst (or whatever that was)

There goes the neighborhood. I was almost run iver by a moose around the age of 9 once. On the side of highway 110 in Amesbury MA. True.

Be warned.....

now THAT'S a pickle! I don't know--I have like, two squirrels who come to my back yard sometimes. That's about it.

Sometimes they wander down the river that runs through my community.

Cool.

I will/would give a moose the 'right of way' no matter what! They are huge critters and do do a lot of damage to cars and people, up here on the tundra (lol).

That's really cool, on one level. My sister (in Alaska) doesn't appreciate them helping themselves to her shrubbery.

Wish you had a pic! :)
