14. I have a picture somewhere

with my wife trying to get close to a cow moose on the Richardson Highway. That was the early 70s, didn't realize how dumb we were at the time.

If you lived in Anchorage. Do you remember the lion that A & W kept in a cage near Mt. Miew?

15. My dad was in the army and was stationed in

Ft. Richardson from 70-73. I was a kid in 4th grade then.

Some friends and I were in a field watching a cow moose and here calf. Didnít see the bull moose if to the side but he saw us. He charged us and we ran. Probably just to scare us off.

Donít remember the A&W.

5. I worked at Lake Hotel in Yellowstone and often had to walk past them at night.

They are HUGE and the females are Aggressive - never look them in the eye.

8. A moose was spotted in these parts a couple of years ago (Northeastern NY)

It was a female, so likely was not as big as this one, but my friend was one of the locals who happened to see her. That moose was transported to a safer area - it was local motorists who spotted the moose - I certainly hope that that this moose was also relocated, way too close to a roadway.

12. My buddy and I

came face to face about 15' from a bull while hiking down Mt Kathdin ME. We froze, then very very slowly backed away. They are absolutely huge!

13. Two guys I knew--Mark and Moose.

Moose was a nickname. They were good friends, carpenters. One night on the way to Mark's
birthday party at his remote house in the Chiricahua Mts here in SE Az, Moose lost control of
his truck and got killed. Mark found a 'Moose Crossing' sign and put it up next to the crash site.
It's still there.
Yeah moose can get huge.
