Snow moose

Capt. Kangaroo's Mister Moose was darker. Are these SOB meeses? They fiberglass anything deese days. Next you know they'll have artists painting 'em and auctioning for charity...

My first thought was whether posting this photo needed some attribution for copyright purposes. Turns out it's been circulating the interwebs without a known source. Some explanation here. Who wants to walk up and see if their eyes are pink? Did that to a bison once...

And apparently you survived, CanoeStream? I would never approach a moose or bison just to satisfy my curiosity about the color of their eyes! (or any other reason I can think of). Moosies have right of way on Boundary Waters portages for a very good reason - they are BIG! And a momma moose is MEAN!

SuEllyn sometimes gets closer to her subjects than I like, but that is her thing. Our Lucy is used more for Moose seeking excursions than for any other purpose. Most of Lucy's travels are on the way to Moosing grounds. Here are a couple of SuEllyn's Moose friends from this summer.

No sir.

Have personal knowledge of a stopped, full size, Ford Bronco rolled/totaled by a bull moose.

I wouldn't get near one on purpose for anything, unless I was hunting it and needed, like, say, to make a full ton of jerky.

Bob- The pictures and explanation are exactly the same ones we received. The only thing different in our email was that it said these were photographed just north of the Wisconsin border on a highway near Marenisco, MI.
The subject was named 'snow moose', then in the explanation they were called albino moose.

Thanks.

Hi Kay. No, I'd never be so foolish with a bison. I've been amazed what people will do out in the Black Hills or Yellowstone. 'Thinning the herd' or 'Hey, watch this!' on a tombstone haven't been my weak points.

Guess I'll have to do paybacks for pulling legs 'round here. From a little pond near Cameron Lake in Waterton Lakes about 2 months ago -- it was so much fun watching her feed! Doing her best Jar-Jar Binks imitation...

I too will stay away from moose. When at a BLM campground in the Brooks Range in Alaska, I saw this enormous footprint behind our tent. It was at least 3 times the size of my hand and the CG host said it was moose. Sure didn't make me feel good in our little tent.

At Yellowstone, the bison walk through the tenting grounds. Getting out of a tent in the morning and seeing an animal the size of a car several feet away is disconcerting. I imagined someone angering one and it running through the tents.

An Airstream feels a lot safer.

"Minor Moose" (that's Mr. Minor to you, peanut)

check this guy out!
By the length of his beard and the gray legs, this specimen is estimated to 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 a dirt road can fit 1 1/2 cars across ... this fellow is HUGE ... THIS IS ONE BIG BOY! THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN AT ELLIOT LAKE (Elliot Lake is near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan ) Yes, it is a regular size dirt road.
