Moose on the Loose

Here is a token Moose shot. This guy was working his way down Cordova Street in Anchorage this morning when I got up. He is actually a pretty small moose - probably born last year.

People that have not spent time in Anchorage are often surprised to learn that the moose are common in town. This one was browsing very close to downtown. The municipality of Anchorage has something like 700 moose living within it. In some locations, like near the airport, you can see them almost every day.

I nearly collided with a moose while riding my bike once when I was doing an Anchorage Trail Watch patrol. We startled each other, but neither of us were the worse for wear due to the near miss.
