Musk ox invasion keeps Nome wildlife managers busy
Anchorage Daily News ^ | comJuly 2, 2014 | SEAN DOOGAN

Posted on 07/03/2014 11:39:53 AM PDT by skeptoid

Nome is used to rowdy residents, but some relatively new transplants are making a real nuisance of themselves -- although unlike the colorful characters of the early 20th century gold rush days, these visitors have four legs, not two.

Musk oxen are wandering into the city on the Seward Peninsula, and despite loud noises, water hoses and even a blow-up bear coated in ursine urine, they don't want to leave.

The invasion of our northern border is not our biggest problem.

The Dream Act.
The musk oxen are promised free schooling and social services if they can make it over the border and are under age 18.

Every Musk Ox who comes out of the shadows gets amnesty and an EBT sweet feed card. :-)

Musk oxen invasion. I’m series. Wandering onto the runway like giant, hairy Canada Geese.

We haven’t had an Animal Kingdom Weirdness Undead Thread for a while, and it’s cooler in Alaska this time of year ...

Your post shows a black-x, and copying the properties to a new window gives a *really big*, maybe 6x my monitor screen, picture.

That’s a reasonably-sized view. If the original picture had posted, nobody could have seen anything but the right rear quarter.

Sam The Sham And The Pharaoh’s – Wooly Bully Lyrics

Uno, dos,
one, two, tres, quatro.

Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw.
Had two big horns and a wooly jaw.
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Hatty told Matty: “Let’s don’t take no chance.
Let’s not be *L-seven*, come and learn to dance.”
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Matty told Hatty: “That’s the thing to do.
Get you someone really to pull the wool with you.”
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

If you boiled the meat long enough you could likely turn it into a pretty good stew!

Iced chocolate mocha with a dollop of spirits and some salty or sweet somethings are waiting on the sideboard for one and all.

Take a break before you unpack!
