    You don't realize quite how big until you come barreling around a corner on a road in the foothills, just on twilight, and suddenly realise that there is a bull moose in the road, and you are in a rental car and not your big truck. They are indeed VERY large.

    Oh my! That is crazy. I wouldn't want any part of trying to shoo him away.

    Yeah, I've heard (granted never seen one in real life, but...) that an average moose will get to about 7' at the shoulders.

    When I go out and look at John and imagine a critter a full foot taller than him, it makes me want to piddle in my pants LOL.

    Going by horse size, he will probably finish about 19hh. They're big!
    Ya driving out of Fort McMurray once (not long after I moved to Canada) I said to my husband 'oh look at that horse running, he looks scared' and as we drove closer it was a HUGE moose! Seriously, when it made it to the fence it just stepped over!!! If you hit one in a little car, you take it's legs out and it's body goes straight through the windshield.......my BIL had that happen, his car was full of entrails and the hair from the moose ended up going right in and under the skin on his face!!

    I don't have any moose where I live. But saw plenty when I went to Maine last summer. I have to say I was a little overwhelmed by the size and wasn't too comfortable seeing moose tracks in the mud when I turned back on my hike when there wasn't any tracks in that spot not 10 minutes before. Seeing one when you're in a car is one then, but coming across one on foot is not something that is high up on my bucket list.

    @ Muppetgirl-glad to see you're back to making coherent and logical posts. Thought we lost you for a second while in Mexico

    Plenty of moose (mooses? Meese? Mice?) around here... Funny, went snowmobiling with an Aussie guide and he stopped and pointed at jackrabbit tracks and was fully convinced that they were moose tracks, and that they have giant feet that are able to keep the moose on top of the snow....
    Sigh.

    I took my cane out there today. Threw frozen horse poop at mom.
    I wasn't quite as brave with Momma as I was with just baby...
