I have never been up close and personal with a moose. Even though I live just outside of Chicago, I've seen deer, red foxes, coyotes, and red tailed hawks along with raccoons, opossums, and squirrels.
DH has had some close encounters with moose in the neighborhood already this year. Last week our young dog was playing with another dog when they spooked a moose in the deep brush. The other dog started barking aggressively at the moose. Fortunately when DH called "Zoey - COME!" she broke off and came right to him, and the other dog followed her lead. Told him it was a good thing, because both those dogs can run faster than HE can! 166 days ago
I have seen a Canadian moose in the wild and also a bear, elk, deer, & eagles. They are all each so more regal in the wild. The moose was walking down the road we were on, and also the bear was beside road along the side of the timber, and elk was watching us fishing in the boat, stood there quite awhile A deer was swimming across the lake we were fishing on, and had her calf with her. Eagles everywhere. Seeing them in the wild is something you never forget, and those moose are huge and leggy. lol 166 days ago
