Moose can be testy

Moose are overly "testy" (appropriate word) during this time of year. It's the rut (woohoo).

Here in northern VT you see some really strange behavior from folks who would refer to this as "upstate" VT. People think that just because these big lumbering animals seems rather benign, they won't attack. I've seen idiots from the states just to our south take their kids on their shoulders and move toward the animals as if they're going to pet them. (Darwin Award candidates for sure.)

As for the post that referred to humans killed by moose, that's due to car collisions, I'm certain, not attacks. Most of the year a moose will just walk away, but during the rut, watch out. Did I tell you a moose bit my sister once? Moose bites can be nasty.

Has PETA heard of this outrageous treatment of wildlife?

A Swede hitting an animal with an axe! That is VIOLENCE!

A male moose challengng an intruder is nothing new, but a Swede fighting defensively is totally against the wimpy policies of Swedish foreign policy. Swedes are always supposed to be neutral. The burly burl-collector should have stopped to consider things from the moose's point of view, meditating on the years of oppression suffered by mooses under human oppression.

Once again proving the old adage:


"You don't have to able to outrun the moose....."

A man in southern Norway was out looking for tree burls in the woods Monday afternoon when an angry male moose found him instead.

Beware the Ives of March.

(OK OK I know its October. If you want to be a comedian, start your own thread).

"Norwegian moose are generally shy and usually run..."

This is too funny. No wonder there are so many moose jokes.

Just what exactly is a burl? What would one do with one, if he knew what it was? What do they taste like? Can you make wine of them? What particular tree does it come from? Is this some strange Norwegian custom, like snipe hunting?

Found this definition - A burl is wood cut from a large, rounded growth on a tree. Burl has strong, distinctive grain and is used as a special veneer.

Tree burls. Not to be confused with Salvesen's burls.
