I was outside clipping my nails in preparation for tonight’s Jiu-Jitsu class. I was halfway though my right hand ring finger when Laura burst through the back door. “Bob, I just saw a moose run down the road!” The camera was already in her hand.
I threw the clippers in my pocket and we both bolted outside. We crossed the front yard and went out to the road. She said the moose took off up the neighbor’s driveway. I saw the tracks. They did indeed come down the road and turn to the right to climb the hill across the street.
We followed the tracks up the road until we discovered where they originated. The moose exited the woods from the property right next to ours. And to think, as I had my back to the acreage next door, a male moose with a huge rack was sneaking through the woods, only to come out in the open and run down the road. I don’t want to make this bigger than it is, but what if the moose stealthily approached me from behind and brought me down to China Town? An old saying, but still…
Seriously though – I got a few pictures of the tracks. Just so you believe us.
