We got a call last night that there were a pair of moose near our deck. We missed them (it was after 5pm after all, so pretty much pitch black out) but we'd seen them strolling the yard earlier in the day. While making some snowshoe trails in the woods behind the property I saw highways and intersections of criss-crossing animal prints. We saw elk on the road the other day. It has it's downsides. We have to watch our golden retriever doesn't go far without us so the wolves don't get her. I've had dire warnings about the temperament of moose up here. According to local sources these moose are liable to charge if they don't like the look of you, they are bigger and more dangerous than our civilized Ontario moose.
I am about to take my son and dog snowshoeing. Well, I'll be snowshoeing, Oscar and Maggie haven't mastered it yet. I hope to see some wildlife... from a safe distance.
