In early April a few years ago, this young bull moose, about 2 years old and just under 6 feet tall, decides to check out what was going on INSIDE my house. Now my house lot is cut into the hillside and the backyard is long and narrow with 20 foot rock wall, but that did not stop him from being curious.
He walks onto the patio, looks over his shoulder then takes another step forward. He looks directly at me.
After a few seconds, the bull moose takes a couple more steps forward and peers in the window! His nose is barely away from the window screen!
Nose to nose with Murphy!
I feel like we were the ones in the "fish bowl"! A staring contest between the moose and Murphy continues for a few more minutes before the moose decides that we were not coming out to play after all. He walks away stopping at the corner of the house to see what was going on in the driveway.
The moose hangs around the property another day or so before moving on. Below the moose is grazing on the scrub oak trees just above the rock wall in the back yard.
There is never a dull moment in My Mountain Green!
