... because a walk to pick up the newspaper brings a bull moose in sight!
After reviewing last year's photos of a yearling in our yard and the information on this web site, I think he's the same guy who left his Mom last year after she showed him our neighbor's orchard.
Fortunately my neighbor gave us a head's up that there was a bull moose in the area so I was scanning the area as I walked this morning. I saw him on the side of the road not too far away so ran and got my husband and camera to get these shots.
Last year the game warden told us he and his Mom would leave after all the fruit was gone. They did after several weeks. I'm wondering if this guy came early to stake his claim and if he'll keep others away or at least welcome his Mom back.
Now our dogs will have to be taken out on leash to avoid any encounters. My Moose is no match for this moose.
