Even the Moose get tired of Rain

This little guy and his momma showed up today during one of the heavier rain showers.

They wandered around, ate some of Pammy’s berries and stripped some branches off the trees. The young one then took exception to our pulsing sprinkler.

I’m gonna stomp somethin’.

I don’t know why. The sprinkler was not running but something about that yellow and black hardware in the middle of the lawn really pissed it off.
It sniffed and pawed and finally stomped the sprinkler. It would walk away with a bit of a strut in its step as if to say, “Well, I certainly showed you.”

Then Pammy turned the water on. That really upset both the moose and it’s momma. Note the hackle standing up on the back of the neck. If you ever see a moose with its hair up like that, just walk away. Now ! It would charge the sprinkler until it was hit with the stream then it would back off. It did this over and over.

Finally, they moved off into the woods. Pammy gave it about five minutes then moved to turn off the hose.

Momma came charging out of the woods snorting and grunting. Pammy was in no danger as she was behind the fence. The moose made several threatening moves toward the now running sprinkler but didn’t like to get sprayed in the snoot or the boot.

Even the moose get cranky in the rain.

Alaska Moose enjoying the end of Winter

Cabin Fever may soon rear its ugly head here in SouthCentral Alaska.

The daylight hours are rapidly approaching 12 hours per day, each day we are currently gaining close to 6 minutes a day.

The sun has warmth in it again and the weather has been clear and sunny for the last week. The temps are near freezing during the day and then plummet to the negative over night.

The snow is still three foot deep and the temp reminds you that winter has not relaxed her icy grip.

Denali Ram June 2011

If it were not for these animals, we would most likely not have a Denali National Park. Market hunting pressures and subsequent studies led to the recommendation of the creation of the park.
