A moose on the loose…

This moose was grazing in a marsh west of Bragg Creek when I drove by.  She stared at me for a minute, trotted through brambles a bit and then stared back to me again.

April 24th update: Thank you to The Mysterious Blogger for suggesting the title of this post – now updated.  And, to P.grover for improving my/our understanding of moose and threats to their health.

  4. They look so motley at this time of year, wondered if it was mange when I saw one like this, but a nice find, nonetheless.Didn’t know about winter ticks, so I appreciate the comment by P.Grover I like the change in the branches of the shrubs to that reddish tinge in early spring, too.

    Not a very healthy looking girl…she’s obviously suffering with winter ticks! Poor thing…I hope she can survive them.

    • I had thought it was her winter coat falling out but I have to agree with you, sadly. I didn’t know what winter tick impact looks like – thank you for sharing your knowledge. I hope she recovers as well. If I see her again, I’ll update on how she’s doing.

  7. That’s beautiful. I have seen a few moose in the wild and I think they are just fascinating.
