For the first time to my knowledge: a baby moose on Cute Overload. Look at the spindly legs!

Save Bob!

Mooses International reported on the story of Bob the Moose Head last week. After being in the family for more than 20 years, a Canadian man sold him on eBay. But Bob was detained by U.S. Customs on his way to St. Louis. Bob is currently in custody of the Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources as an unlicensed pelt. And his former owner, Ken Procyk, faces fines and charges for storage.

Moosehead Beer and the Toronto Sun have taken up his case.

There’s a moose wandering around Somers, NY.

“Wendy Rosenbach, a spokeswoman with the state Department of Environmental Conservation, said state wildlife experts have been tracking the female moose, also called a cow, and are confident that she’s the same one that was wandering around Mahopac last year.

‘She wintered in Mahopac and now she’s moved to Somers,’ Rosenbach said yesterday. ‘Most likely, she’s trying to look for some love. It’s not unusual for moose to sometimes hang out with horse and other livestock. If it’s a male moose, it could be a problem if it tries to mate outside its species, but we don’t have that worry with a female.’

Rosenbach’s advice to residents who see the moose? ‘Enjoy it. It’s not often you see moose in Westchester so enjoy it. It’s a rather rare sighting. Just be careful if you’re driving and you see it on the road,’ she said. ‘We’ve been monitoring her movements and she’s appears to be doing well. Hopefully she’ll find a mate and they’ll go live happily ever after.’”

Free a moose, win an award

PETA honored a couple of New Hampshire men for rescuing a moose tangled in a swingset.

“PETA’s letter accompanying the “Compassionate Action” award praised the men’s work.

‘Because of the swift and compassionate actions of these police department employees, not only was the moose rescued from a potentially deadly situation, but the resulting media coverage focused attention on the worth of individual animals and the peril they face when they wanted into urban areas,’ it said.”

Langlade County, WI has a pair of moose that are making the scene. The pair is believed to have migrated from Northern Michigan where there is a moose re-introduction program. “‘I think those two represented about one-quarter of all the moose sightings in Wisconsin last year,’ said Adrian Wydeven, a mammal ecologist for the state Department of Natural Resources.”

Public Service Announcement: Beware of Moose!

From the Denver Post: “Unlike dogs, which just chase cars but seldom catch them, with moose “your motor vehicle could come under attack,” warns the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.”

Mooses International reminds you that moose are larger than you are. Respect their authorita.

We really don’t condone this…

…but they are the “live free or die” state. And if they didn’t regulate it like this, the moose death toll would probably be much higher.

Enter the New Hampshire moose-hunting lottery now.

The staff here at Mooses International may be forming our own NH moose hunting party this year. But we’ll be aiming with our camera lenses.

From Sault Ste. Marie, ON, Canada: Peter Rouse noticed a moose crossing a frozen river and fall through the ice. Trapped in the flow, he and his father spent an hour breaking up ice so that the moose could escape.

Here’s a shot of the lucky moose waiting to be rescued:

There’s more photos of the amazing rescue in the story.
