It's during this time when we have to be a bit more careful because they seem much more prone to keep coming close and even won't get out of the way for our vehicles as we go down the drive way.
Moose attacks do happen. I have a sign hanging on my house that says, Beware of Attack MOOSE! I really hung it up as a joke, but it's not a joke if you are unfortunate enough to get caught under these guys hooves. I'm sure you've seen video online, if not just type "moose attack" into Google. Forget about the dog in the yard, watch out for the moose!
This is my best mad moose picture. He was in our yard one winter and decided he wanted us gone. I thought he was gonna jump up on the porch and kick me into my house! The picture was taken as he angrily walked down the sidewalk.
Here is a video of a cow and her two calves that were hanging around here on Sunday. After I uploaded it, the video turned out a bit blurry, but you can still get a good look at them.
Ah ha, Sigrid Ekran was the first rookie into Nome. Good job Sigrid. Oh, Ellen Halverson left Eagle Island a head of Donald Smidt, is she gonna have competition for the Red Lantern position? 22 scratches so far this year, I wonder if that is higher than normal? I have heard so much about the horrible trail, maybe it has just been harder on dogs, sleds and mushers than usual.
No new news about Millie lately. :-(
