A Moose in the Yard

A friend asked me yesterday why I picked "mooseintheyard" for my URL.

Well, the first winter we were in Alaska, there was this:

video


Picking the URL was an obvious choice. :^)

Unique. I like.

I'd love to see one but I bet as a gardener they'd make me cuss even more than the deer do. What are they, about 10 times in size compared to a white-tail deer?

I just always assumed you had one in your yard upon moving in and/or it was indicative of an Alaskan meme!

Thanks, Stephen. Glad I could make you smile.

PH, the one in the video would run about 1200 lbs, and the really big ones top 1400 lbs. So pretty much 10 times bigger than their whitetail cousins.

Guffaw, we saw moose almost upon arrival, but the one here was the first to visit our apartment. Meme? You could say so: there are 800 moose living inside the city year-round, and 1200+ during the winters.
