Where is the moose?

Instead of playing “Where's Waldo?”, today we have a game of “Where's the moose?” in Spokane Valley. The moose was spotted near City Hall on Sprague Avenue shortly before 9 a.m., then he was reported near Sprague and University Road. He jumped a fence to get away from police and is still wandering around somewhere. If you spot this critter, call Crime Check at 456-2233. Do not approach the moose, however. They can be a bit cranky. Photo courtesy the Spokane Valley Police Department.

Moose on the loose

Spokesman-Review (and Valley Voice)  photographer J. Bart Rayniak didn't have to wander far this weekend to take a great photo of a napping moose. He only had to go as far as his back yard in Otis Orchards. I'll let Bart tell it himself.

“This female moose wandered into Spokesman-Review photographer J. Bart Rayniak's yard in Otis Orchards, Saturday morning, May 14, 2011, and made herself comfortable for the day, resting in the shade and foraging on flowering cherry blossoms and bushes. According to Washington Fish and Wildlife officer Paul Mosman, although quite docile, moose are unpredictable, so it's best to put your dogs inside, and keep your distance until they wander away, which this young lady did at dusk.”

While I'm sure the moose was nice to watch (from a distance), I kind of feel sorry for Bart's dog. She probably had to stay inside all day.
