Hey Greg & Martha, a young male moose made it to my neighborhood while I was doing my morning crossword puzzle - unfortunately they killed it in the lake damn it! - I think the DNR guy panicked and jumped the gun - it's that lake I walk across (in the winter eh eh eh) to the Post office to mail back the netflix dvds that I copy -.....indications are that it traveled oh let us say 150 miles from your neck of the woods through tons of civilization...
DNR believe he was a member of the northeast moose herd (sounds like should have a casino). He likely traveled from Aitkin County or the Cloquet area. It was a very long trip to the Twin Cities.
"I think it's just the time of year when the young ones are dispersing, trying to find their place in the world
and this one just kept going too far I guess," says Lueth. I guess!
In all seriousness, I'm really miffed they killed him, they should have tranquiled him, given him an award, thrown him a hot dish dinner in his honor and then put him in a caravan up to Duluth
