moose at play

As I was looking out the kitchen window I saw these black blobs running through the trees just above our east pasture. Without waiting to see what it was I just grabbed my video camera and ran outside. I love what I captured on film .... a cow moose and her two calves .... playing! Any other time I've seen a moose it pretty much just stands there and does nothing. These guys are having a hoot of a good time.

There was another couple of minutes after this, which I also taped, but it's not as interesting. They continue to walk around, Mom digs up some shoots for them, they jump the fence and wander around some more. If you really want to see it I'll post it, but this clip is the fun stuff.

That is so cool! Usually when you see animals they just stand around or run away, to see them playing that that is neat. I always look over in that are, but of course I never see anything so I am glad you got your camera out to capture that.

The Blomquist's Moose Sanctuary is back in business, I see.

That's pretty cool. You're right, one rarely sees them running! How cold was it for you to stand outside that whole time? Brr.
