October 6, 2006: Moose chases conservation officer



Why is it a Thursday image if the beast chases another beast, but a Friday image if the beast chases a human? I doubt the guy got hurt in this xoB/WaPo image, which apparently took place in Ogden, Utah. The caption says they were trying to hit it with a tranquilizer gun but the moose got the better of them somehow.

I read something about this in the paper. IIRC the guy was actually trying to get the moose to chase him to lead it to a better location. Either to shoot it with a dart or maybe catch it somehow.

Run, Forrest, run.

But somebody must have had a camera at the ready... the window of opportunity for a shot like this must be pretty small.

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the moose with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian movies: "The Hot Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Molars of Horst Nordfink"...

Maybe they should have tried shooting him with it. You don't have to be so close that way...

- 1/4 c vinegar
Cut the upper jaw bone of the moose just below the eyes. Place in a large kettle of scalding water and boil for 45 minutes. Remove and chill in cold water. Pull out all the hairs - these will have been loosened by the boiling and should come out easily ( like plucking a duck). Wash thoroughly until no hairs remain. Place the nose in a kettle and cover with fresh water. Add onion, garlic, spices and vinegar Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the meat is tender. Let cool overnight in the liquid. When cool, take the meat out of the broth, and remove and discard the bones and the cartilage. You will have two kinds of meat, white meat from the bulb of the nose, and thin strips of dark meat from along the bones and jowls. Slice the meat thinly and alternate layers of white and dark meat in a loaf pan. Reheat the broth to boiling, then pour the broth over the meat in the loaf pan. Let cool until jelly has set. Slice and serve cold.
Serve cold? You gotta be kidding!

See the look on that Moose's face? That is a benign, friendly look. It is NOT the look of pure evil glee like we saw on the rhino.
