    A very large animal got stuck in a New Hampshire pool Tuesday night -- and was not a-moosed. A young bull moose waded into the backyard pool and couldn't climb out for hours, because it didn't have stairs. Officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department swooped in to save the moose, eventually coaxing it out of the pool by placing a wooden set of stairs underwater. After emerging from the water, the moose took off into the woods.

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...

Sorry but that horrid "Git Up" song by Blanco Brown has nothing whatsoever to do with country music. This is Bloggers & Personal so I get to post pretty much whatever i want to here.

    If you're trying to beat the heat, there's always air conditioners, ice cream, and ceiling fans. Sometimes, animals have to get a bit creative. A video surfaced this weekend of a moose in Anchorage, Alaska just chilling next to an oscillating sprinkler. According to the video's description the moose was "sprinkler hopping from yard to yard" before finally settling down, staying hydrated and getting in a nice soak. Alaska is in the midst of a record heat wave, with temperatures hitting the 90s earlier this week. Not only is this a 30-year high, but normal temperatures this time of year...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The National Park Service improperly banned an Alaska moose hunter from using a hovercraft on a river through a national preserve, the US Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a unanimous decision. The court limited the National Park Service’s authority to enforce laws and regulations on state-owned rivers in Alaska. Justices rejected the agency’s argument that the river was “public land” for regulatory authority and that the agency’s water rights interest gave it rule-making authority. The outcome was a victory for moose hunter John Sturgeon of Anchorage, who had sued and lost in lower court rulings. “We reverse...

    Moose mistaken for burglar after crashing into Breckenridge home Mar 15, 2019 By: Robert Garrison BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Sleeping guests inside a Breckenridge home were awakened early Friday morning to the sound of broken glass. Thinking they were being burglarized, the guests called 911. But when officers arrived on scene, they soon discovered the trespasser was not the typical troublemaker they regularly encounter. Breckenridge police found that a moose had crashed through a window in the home’s basement. Colorado Parks and Wildlife were called and said the animal probably had had been walking around outside the house in deep snow...

    Rather than reduce dairy subsidies, the USDA has been paying to have surplus milk made into cheese. In the 1930s, the U.S. federal government established dairy subsidies to bail out America’s dairy farmers from the Great Depression. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, those same subsidies are still in effect today, where they have underwritten a massive surplus of milk in the U.S. dairy industry that far exceeds the appetites of over 327 million Americans to consume it. But rather than reduce the subsidies to reduce the surplus to more reasonable levels, the USDA is instead paying the U.S....

    Hanna Rosin has written that she “hesitate[s] to get drawn into data wars” (and suggested my blog to those readers who have “an appetite for them”).1Statistics, however, are not mere technical details, academic in the pejorative sense. They are reflections of reality – numbers that represent characteristics of a sample which, if done right, reflect the population from which the sample is drawn. It is in the broad sense of measuring reality, not the narrow sense of quibbling over details at the nth decimal place, that the “end of men” is not true. Rosin’s depiction of reality is not accurate.

    More than 900,000 cubic yards of cheddar, American and Swiss currently sit in cold storage across the United States, enough cheese to form a wheel the size of the U.S. Capitol building. The excess is the biggest the country has seen since the government started keeping track a century ago, and it's 16 percent larger than the cheese surplus of 2016 when the government offered to buy up $20 million worth of excess cheese...
