    "warns motorists to be on the look out for the moose because the animal is dark colored and "tough to spot."'

    Yeah, I can see how a MOOSE would be tough to spot.

    Re: Moose on the loose in Iowa

    I'm gonna fight the urge to make a cougar joke in this thread, since I already did that in the bear thread, but I can't promise anything.

    Re: Moose on the loose in Iowa

    No punch line....Saw the thread title and thought it kinda funny that I saw out of place wild life in an urban setting today. So I guess thats the punch line.

    Cougars, bears, moose. Iowa is becoming a tourist spot for animals.
    I saw a Moose swimming across the Des Moines River just south of the Saylorville
    dam in 1983. I thought, " why is there a horse out there?" Since I had a spotting scope in the car we were able to see the big ears, long face and bulbous, down-drooping nose.

    And Somebody in Iowa will shoot it because it was threatening them or their cat or some such (like the on the loose cougar and bear). Woe to be big and wild in Iowa: Iowans get scared and shoot.

    There was another Moose loose in Iowa in 1989 or 1990. He just started heading south from northern Minnesota and never stopped.

    A DNR officer I know said that albino deer must be the meanest animals in Iowa because every one thats been shot has been charging. They say they get scared and shoot, but it's just an excuse to shoot an animal thats illegal to shoot.

    When did Denison become urban ;)


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    whatever happened to the bear thread? I assume it got deleted.

    I'm guessing it was this one that I saw growing up. Although would have guessed a couple years later.

    My dad came up stairs early one Saturday morning to wake my brother and I up. I remember thinking "what are you doing it's Saturday?" Then he said "there's a moose outside". I remember thinking "yeah like I'm going to fall for that".

    He apparently had just had a similar conversation with our neighbor that came knocking on our door to tell us.

    We went out and drove around watching it. It was pretty awesome. I remember it getting to the fence line in fields and just taking them in stride and not even needing to jump to clear them.
