It's always so nice when people visit you at work, especially when it's a five am desk shift in the dorms on finals week! Eugh! Anyway - Just a quick picture!

Have a good day!

WOW!!! how close were you?? I hope a safe distance, we're told around here that moose can either charge because they're in rutting season or they can get a brain disease that make them unpredictable. But very kewl to get such a great pic!

Moose are on campus residential campus I'd say nearly every other day it seems. They usually hang out in the flower beds close to the buildings - and if they're blocking door ways we have to call University Police to have them come herd the moose away. Other than that, it's all very tame and mild. We're told if their ears are back to keep a distance, but they're *usually* very very docile - and "city moose" aren't scared of much. You can honk your car horn at them, they just look up and go back to eating trees without batting an eyelash. Kind of like skinny, tall, lazy cows...

*However there is a youtube video of an older man being trampled to death near our library a few years ago, that professors always make us watch for extra credit as a teaching tool - apparently some drunk kids had been throwing snowballs at it a few hours earlier and it was pretty ticked off and took it out on the wrong person. Very, very sad.*

Very cute. It looks like a young moose to me because it doesn't look fully grown. Probably from last spring's births. I wonder where the mom is?

P.S. Rutting season is in the fall....October...November-ish.

That's just too cool for words. Quite a difference from the bunnies in the little field behind our office (although I love to sit and watch them on my breaks)

i grew up in New Jersey, so that picture blows my mind. we had coyotes (in the suburbs!), but moose are a different story altogether.

Oh, that is so cool! And I was impressed by the huge buck I almost hit on campus two years ago...a moose! That's something else.

I am a city girl here too. I grew up in Toronto in the 60s and 70s. I saw my first moose when I was a teenager in Toronto at the Royal Ontario Museum. It was a full adult male and stuffed and standing posed in a glass case.
My first thought was...the thing is HUGE!!!

I was glad it was stuffed. I would not want to face a live one close up. LOL.
