February 2, 2007: Moose comes to stay



A lurker sent these along before Christmas, and they sat in the queue for a while and then got LOST, but here they are found again, and the set has not gotten the attention they deserve from the net. (Plus, I think the lurker may have signed up for a real Cellar account... speak up now if you want credit!)

The story goes:

Quote:
When this little guy was young; he lost his mother too soon.

So the Fish and Game brought him to Wendall and Debbie. They asked them to get him raised to a safe age to turn him loose again. So they bottle fed and took care of him; after a while they fed him with their cows.

So last Spring he was a year old ... and it was time to turn him back into the wild. Opened the gate and off he went.

Stayed gone all summer; then this fall he was back with the cows. He really thinks he is a cow for now, all were happy to see him as he is pretty friendly.

He loves honey buns and will eat them right out of your hand. Wendall and Debbie live right up in the mountains so it came time to bring the cows down.

Well the moose was lonely all by himself so he headed down to find another heard of cows to hang with.

The neighbors called about a week later and asked Wendall to please come and get his Moose. So he headed out with a honey bun, bucket of grain and the horse trailer and brought him back home.

The moose is free to go anytime he wants but is choosing to stay put for now. Surely, come spring he will start to feel a bit like a male Moose and take off, but for now he is happy.

Great pics and a great story!

Looks like they have at least several neighbors. Wonder how they feel about a bull moose wandering the 'hood.
This is not Bullwinkle.

1. My work computer had the subject line truncated to "Moose comes...", so I was pleased to see that this was not, in fact, moose porn.

2. Anybody else think the guy with the moose looks like UT?

3. Oh my God! The moose killed Mr and Mrs Claus!!!



Sheldonrs  Friday Feb 2 01:57 PM

When I was in AK, the people there all said the same thing when we went for hikes. Don't worry so much about the bears. Just roll up in a ball and stay still and they will move on.
But if you see a Moose...run like hell! Thoses critters will keep chasing you until they get you if you aren't far enough ahead.



skysidhe  Friday Feb 2 02:07 PM

I loved this! Thank you UT.

Mooses, meeses

Cloud  Friday Feb 2 03:37 PM

"please come get your moose" HAHA!



Elspode  Friday Feb 2 03:43 PM

What's that big brown ball on the deck, there? You don't suppose its a big doughball, ready to be rolled into crust for moose turd pie?

A loaf of bread?

Maybe so, but my idea was funnier.:p

It's a tribble!

There is a lovely children's book about a moose that falls in love with a cow. It is based on a real life situation. Seems this could be similar - if he is still with the cows in the Spring. We and he should always be watchful of the bull however....



mcnugget91  Friday Feb 2 07:58 PM

moosebugers?

When I was in Alaska, the people there told me they eat moose and caribou. Sort of like cow and deer. Apparently quite tasty.

Great book...

When I was working on the Alaskan pipe line the ubiquitous wiggling leafy bushes that cover everything in lower AK was called "Pucker Brush" by the locals.

I asked why?

I was told, "Because you can barely crawl through that stuff but a moose after you - can run 25MPH through it ."

If you give a moose a muffin

He will leave you one in return , a steaming one !!!


I like the pic with the moose in a ball cap !!!

There's nothing wrong with Moose Love.

The Taming of the Moose

Some time in Russian history there was a group of maurading bandits who had domesticated moose. They would saddle these moose a ride over the snow covered areas and raid other villages and escape unscathed.The moose they were riding were able to go through the deep snow so swiftly, there was no way any one could pursue.Ultimately this led to a law forbidding the domesticating of moose in Russia.

Also,moose turds are about the same size and shape as those foil covered milk chocolate Easter eggs.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Feb 3 08:22 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, banjobob.
Interesting story, probably has considerable mileage on it.

But I don't believe it. Moose don't move that fast in heavy snow and certainly couldn't outrun a man on cross country skis. The man better be armed when he catches up though.



jinx  Saturday Feb 3 08:28 PM

Unless the moose is running in deep snow next to a groomed trail I've got to disagree with you xoB.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Feb 3 08:44 PM

They don't run in deep snow, they plod.



Happy Monkey  Saturday Feb 3 08:49 PM

My guess is they plod everywhere unless they have a reason to hurry.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Feb 4 01:26 AM

Yeah, except during the rut.

A moose once bit my sister... No really! She was carving her initials into it with the sharp end of an interspace toothbrush given to her by svenge - her brother in law - an olso dentist and also the star of many movies - "hot hands of an olso dentist" "fillings of passion" and "the huge molars of horst nordfink"

Not a whole lot out there that can make a moose hurry. No reason to hurry, no hurry.
As stated earlier, they only hurry for tha' tang.

giddyup!



rkzenrage  Monday Feb 5 03:40 PM

Brave man. Then again, I tried that on a bull... once.
