This Blog Is In Desperate Need Of Big Moose Pictures

Roxana, who also claims to go by the unlikely moniker of "Nanny," has given me permission to publish these unshopped photos of a moose. She is the photographer. I would have not been able to hold the camera steady as I would be very busy trying to adjust my location to a point much, much farther away...

In any event, I find that pneumonia and friendship drama both respond well to the distraction of big moose pictures.

This is Roxana's commentary on The Creature:

They grow them big in Manitoba ! Man! What an animal.....his hind legs are like tree trunks !!

By the length of his beard and the grey legs, I figure he must be over 10 years old. He looks to be well over 8 feet at the top of the shoulder hump,and with his head up the height to the top of his antler must be about 12 feet .This guy is king of the forest, no bear or pack of wolves would dare come after him when he has this rack.

Considering that a dirt road can fit 1 1/2 cars across ... this fellow is HUGE. THIS IS ONE BIG BOY!

Yes it is a regular size dirt road.

  1. Wow. I see why they are such a road hazard in Finland.

    I'm sorry to hear pneumonia got you, but glad to hear you got it back.
