Moose in the Backyard
It’s been a really, really busy summer – but we have enjoyed lots of animal sightings, and several in our own backyard. About a month ago, I was going after Reba in the back, thinking she was chasing a rabbit. The rabbit turned out to be a small black bear.
A couple of weeks later, we had a family of moose early in the morning. A lot of the guests got to see this set: a bull, a cow and twins. Well today, mom and the twins were back munching leaves on the neighbor’s aspen trees about 10 feet beyond our garage.
They had just scared the you-know-what out of Bill when he was
putting attempting to put a broken dishwasher in the garage. We climbed out onto a flat section of the roof to get this picture – because it is not safe to even think about getting this close to them. They sure looked healthy and good, with lots of winter hair. Each of these guys was about the size of Bill’s horse. Their mom was hidden in the bushes behind them. To see a video of them, click here.
