It’s just another day in Alaska as a neighborhood welcomes a mama moose and her two calves to cool down using one of their sprinklers. There aren’t too many places where your street block party could be interrupted by the largest member of the deer family, but oh my god do I wish I lived in one.
I know you people who grew up with moose are going to think I’m lame, but I legitimately get giddy when I spot a moose on a ski trip out west or to the northeast. There’s just something undeniably cool about them and I could honestly watch them all day if I had to.
I don’t want a moose to charge me, because that would obviously be terrifying, but I wouldn’t mind living in a neighborhood that had some moose stroll through it from time to time. I’ll know I’ve made it when that day comes. Until then I’ll settle for the millions of stupid white tail deer, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, and other lame wildlife that lives in the midwest.
