Moose Sighting

Posted by on November 12, 2012

Unfortunately moose sightings were difficult due to the lateness of the season. However, with sharp eyes, a female moose was spotted munching on the foliage while a male moose lingered near by.

Suddenly, the Mrs. took off across the road with Mr. following close behind.

The following day we spotted two more walking through the river but never got a chance to photograph them. Oh, well…  Happy to catch even a quick glimpse.

Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. They used to have a much wider range but hunting and other human activities greatly reduced it over the years. Moose have been re-introduced to some of their former habitats.

Unlike most other deer species, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. The most common moose predators are wolves, bears and humans.
