I texted some folk in the village this morning to say there was a moose on their front lawn. They went to look and texted back that it was gone.
Happy April Fool's Day.
It wasn't too far fetched as last week we had a bear and cub raiding garbage cans and compost heaps. They had a ball one evening in the alley behind the bakery.
It makes one look before stepping outside. The conservation officers came with a big-barrel bear trap much like this one,
and they seem to have been removed.
ps. One of the smarties I wrote to about the moose in their yard wrote back that it was now steaks and in his freezer...... clever fellow.
