In case anybody's wondering...

Yes, the moose meander right around in the habited areas and along the roadsides. They have no problem whatsoever being near people and buildings, and they can have nasty tempers, so just give them enough room to do what they want to do and eat whatever of your flower garden they might fancy.

James took this picture in downtown Anchorage, through the window of our car. That's a young bull moose between the roadway and an apartment building.

Here's another one, heading for cover along the highway between Nikiski and Soldotna:


  1. I can't even imagine the size of the poopy pick up bags they sell in Alaska..

    They're sorta like cotton tail rabbits are here.

    Anyone feeling compelled to bag the "calling cards" is going to be very busy or very disappointed.

  3. But tourists do buy them. Poop-on Moose-turd, anyone?

  4. @James {forehead slap} Ew! But a good pun!
    Yes, tourists do buy them. I remember a while back, people used to make cow pies into "decorative objects" and you can find moose, um, objects too. Even gold-painted ones called gold "nuggets." A fool and his money....

  5. I did not come up with that. :)
