Last I heard he was headed towards Roxbury, which is pretty rural- last night he was spotted just to the north laying down in a field of cows.

I also hope nothing happens to him. Moose are commonly seen up here in Alaska, particularly in Fairbanks where I am. Females with young are even more dangerous then males are because if they feel threatened they will charge and probably trample you.

They may have shot him- DEEP thought he was a danger going onto the highway- they are trying to confirm if it is the same moose or not. It is estimated that there are between 100-300 in the state, tragic at any rate. Don't know why they couldn't have just knocked him out and relocated him.

It wasn't "Marty" that was shot, but another- still sad. Last sighting was a small town called Bethlehem (yeah, everyone goes to the post office at Christmas time to get the post mark), it is very rural and should be ok there for now- looks like he is turning more towards the north.

When I lived in Watertown, NY I had one bull that used to wander around in my back yard about this time every year. You do not realize how huge they are until you see one up close and personal as you are doing yard work.
One time I looked up to find him watching me from 10 feet away. He had feet like dinner plates.

I would love to know what these cows were thinking once he hopped up and looked down on them.

From about 4 feet above.
They look like neighbors going over to introduce themselves to the new home buyer on the block.

They sure do. Safety in numbers, and all that.
