I Need to Get Bigger

By , October 17, 2015

The cow moose that visited our property a couple of times recently (see Maybe I’m Not Wasting My Time After All and Moose Hide) has become a bit of a problem in the neighborhood. Word trickles in from neighbors that she’s hitting most of the gardens on our peninsula and both sides of the bay, our side and the road side.

Oddly, she seems to have developed a taste for onions. She drove our nearest neighbor to harvest her garden early, and she brought over a lot of onion tops for us, which we’ve put to excellent use. When she arrived back on our property around 3:00 p.m. Thursday, we caught her cropping one of our many bunches of chives.

Unfortunately, another rumor about this moose appears true as well: she’s getting more aggressive. It seems she’s growing tired of all these annoying people yelling at her while she’s trying to eat.

She's becoming a familiar figure on our property (Phto: Mark A. Zeiger).

Music to Annoy the Savage Beast

The moose I encountered on Wednesday (see Yet Another Moose Encounter) came back Thursday.

Dang, but he’s big! I don’t think we’ve ever had any bulls in the yard that we’ve been aware of. If we have, they’ve been calves. This guy’s tall and well muscled.

And yet, he seems a melancholy, poetic soul. Perhaps even sensitive?
