It never ceases to amaze me how totally nuts tourists get at seeing a moose. I’ve seen folks risk a 10 car pile up just to take pictures of one standing on the side of the road. I once had a car full of tourists slam their brakes in the middle of the road and just pile out the car like clowns at a circus. The car was just abandoned there in the middle of the road with all four doors wide open. It took me a second to figure out what they were so excited about. Damn moose!
I guess I’ve lived in Alaska too long. Unless it is laying on a plate in front of me seasoned just right with some potato salad on the side, I just don’t get that worked up about moose.
