This week, in our village, a yearling moose wandered into the village and a German Shepherd cross dog chased and attacked it, biting it around the face. The moose was bleeding about the face when our village dog catcher got there, she shot the dog on the spot. The village has no tolerance for harassing of wild life.
In Dawson Creek, many miles east of us in British Columbia, the moose are hanging out in the local shopping centre because the snow has been packed down and they are dining on the trees that line the streets. They feel safer in the town and finding food is easier.
In Stewart a town about 400 miles north of here it was reported on the news this morning that a moose had climbed up a pile of snow and onto a persons roof. I assume the roof must have been fairly flat, but a 1500lb moose on the roof must have been something to see. I wonder how they got it down. One doesn't argue with a moose.
The cougar (mountain lion) is still hanging around the village and our dog is still spooked and staying inside. The dogs in the village are barking a lot, I suppose they all can smell it.
