This ol' gal and her calf came to town a while back. My friend was trying to get a picture of the calf when we spotted Momma in the bush, getting all wild-eyed. Got my friend back in the car and Momma took junior across the river and right into the town park.

Man I sure would love to live in Montana! Awesome. Visited once and it made a lasting impression.

I submitted that pic to the local phone company for their annual cover photo contest, but it was too fuzzy. :(

That's neat! I miss moose. I lived in Anchorage in grade school and we saw them all over. Smart move getting away from mama. Pretty much every "moose killed human" event I have ever heard of involved a baby-human-mama sandwich.

Also, them are tasty animals :D

... I lived in Anchorage in grade school and we saw them all over. ..
A rookie MP from Ft. Richardson was sent out to get a cow moose out of a picnic area at one of the post lakes. He'd been in-country about 2 weeks. When the moose stood her ground, he walked up an whacked it on the nose with his PR-24. He got out of the hospital about 3 weeks later. :p

I see them in my back yard occasionally here in central MA.
