There's a moose loose near the hoose!

Whilst reading through a few blogs over the last few days I popped over to one of my favourites to find that they had had a visitor ... a moose. For those of you who missed it here is the link: We are not alone

Can you imagine how exciting it would be to come face-to-face with such a magnificent, wild creature ... what sort of sounds do they make, I wonder?

Late note: yes it's 1.00 am in the morning and I apologize I have just been informed that the beautiful animal is, in fact, an elk ... and I had looked at the antlers and thought to myself those are fine and narrow antlers that that moose adorns! lol ... did the rest of you manage to spot the difference too?

Yes, It is an elk. I live in Alberta, Canada, where deer are a common site around our property, and elk are close by in the Banff and Jasper areas. We do get the occasional moose sighting, although they are more rare than the others'
