Hi Gallatin,

I'm no expert on this coming from the UK where we don't have them but I was drawn to the distinctive hump on the back/shoulder area which reminded me of the Moose.

So I google images of Moose and what was returned certainly made me more convinced that it is a Moose and probably a young one as there is no sign of the great antlers they grow.

Yeah, it's a cow moose. Lots of them where I live. I've been as close as about 10 feet away from a large Bull Moose, that just towered over me in my car. I would never get close to a Moose as they can be very dangerous, but in this instance I was driving around a curve in the road in Riding Mountain, Manitoba and there he was, in his full glory, right, smack dab in the middle of the road.

I wasn't going to honk or trigger any response.

So I came to a stop in the car, rolled the windows up, remained quiet and just waited. Eventually after about a minute, he looked at me and sauntered casually off into the bush.
