CANNONBALL, N.D. - When Beverly and Ernie Fischer gathered up their cattle this fall in Morton County, they rounded up a little more than they expected. We were moving some cattle, and we got a moose," Ernie Fischer said. "He thinks he is a cow," said his wife.
Ernie Fischer said it was difficult to get the young bull moose away from the cattle, and workers put it in a separate corral until it could be released. The moose also broke fences on the ranch 20 miles south of Mandan.
It's not the only such incident in south central North Dakota this year. Emmons County rancher Sam Gross recently reported a lone bull moose in his cattle herd, and a moose also was spotted in a cattle herd in McIntosh County.

Reminds me what granpappy used to say.. You can keep a bull moose out of the shower but it’s another thing keeping them out of the herd.
Anybody see my sister???
Send him to Iran. They don’t have any confusion there.
Harry Reid thinks he is a Senator when actually he is a horses ass. No explaining these things.
In a related story, this cow thinks it's a CNN political correspondent.
Send him to San Francisco. He’ll fit right in.
He was just looking for some cheese.
That's so mean. I'm sorry. Really, I am. *snort*
Another sexually confused moose-slim. Err... I mean slim moose.
You beat me to it. I was going to post a similar reply.
Call out the gay-lesbian-whatever crew:
This so-called "bull" moose is actually a pre-operative transgendered male moose and is just suing for the right to go to the bathroom with the females.
The moose was quoted as saying, "I'm no longer Bruce the moose. I wish to be called Brucine.... You bitch."
I know, it was begging.
I actually waited a while, to see if anyone else would do it, but I couldn’t restrain myself anymore.
Could be some interesting hybrids around come calving season...
Seems to me a ‘bull; anything in with the females (cows, not steers or bulls) is not so confused, depending on what he is doing, of course.
Moo moo moose!?
He? I'll say he's confused if he thinks HE's a COW.
The generic term for Cows Bulls and Steers is Kine. It's archaic but it's more accurate than calling a he a cow.
“Cattle” works, too. It takes in the whole herd, as opposed to “Cows”, which only means the female portion, usually which has been bred at least once. (Heiffers are not veterans of that...)
Not that anyone would
