Anyway, moosed kicked a section of fence down to escape and the dogs are okay... What a truly awful day Monday turned out to be!
We had a cow moose... with a calf... grazing maybe 50 feet from our house a few years back when the kids were smaller. I wouldn't let them go outside to play as long as she was there... momma moose can be very, very protective (read: dangerous).
We had an interesting "wildlife watching" experience last week... a pair of bald eagles were divebombing this poor little duck on the river. The duck saw 'em and dived under the water but they were waiting for it to re-surface. The second time the duck submerged, he swam about 200 yards upstream from the eagles, who were still waiting where he went underwater... and took flight, escaping pretty much unscathed.
