Getting around town - 1-20-15

Today has been a TOTAL moose day! Ted Carleton got these photos of two moose sampling shrubs and trees today:

I didn't get any photos myself, but two moose have been hanging around the neighborhood all day. At one point they were standing head to head in my neighbor's driveway across the street, while he tried to figure out how to open his garage door and get parked inside. They seem to especially like the crabapple tree he has growing in his front yard, as they spent a great deal of time sampling it. Must be extra special - that same tree is a big draw for the bears. I remember one fall when a mama bear had her 2 cubs up in the tree sampling crabapples while she relaxed underneath it. (We told the Division of Wildlife we didn't think it was raccoons getting up in the neighbor's tree. I think it was the bear scat that convinced them...).

    Have apples - will get critters! emoticon With all the snow, finding food has got to be a challenge.

    Having an apple tree in your neighbourhood guarantees free visits, and often, from Moose and bears. Perhaps he should of planted that one at the back of his backyard, instead on the front lawn. emoticon emoticon

    Where are you? I can't imagine having this kind of wide life (or snow) in my front yard!
