I had never seen a white moose either, until this picture.

They are very magestic animals aren't they? So amazingly BIG, yet absolutely graceful when they run. Long, long legs.

I wonder if in one of the Native cultures, a White Moose has a similar connotation to that of a White Buffalo.

And the way they run threw brush as if it was not even there always amazes me.

A white moose has to be a very rare event for sure and must have some significance, like a white bufalo that was born a few years back.

And can a moose swim? Absolutely amazing the strength and the stamina these animals have.

I once watched a cow and her calf swimming across the Columbia River just north of Revelstoke. When we stopped to have a look they were just entering the water to swim across to where we were. We had work to do and drove away, but when we came back some hours later, at least three hours had passed, they were still swimming and had almost made it across.

The water was so cold, a human would not last more than a minute or two at most, you would think these two would be pretty tired after swimming against such a strong flow for so long, but they still had the strength to run and run they did. Straight up the side of the mountain and my boss who wanted to shoot the calf didn't even get a shot off, which was fine with me because I thought their life was tough enough without any of us adding to it.

But a white moose, that is awesome! Thanks Tim,

If anyone has the money to buy food, WHY oh WHY would anyone want to ever shoot someone else just for the thrill of the kill? (You already know the story of me and my chickens... no way would I have ever allowed one of them n MY dinner plate!)
