Don't mess with the moose

OK, we know this already makes sense and we know they can be dangerous, but now we really, really know it. There is a family that lives about 150 yards down the hill from us. They let their two dogs out to roam a bit every day. The dogs play a bit, then come right back. Two days ago, one of them didn't return until hours later. He was beaten to a pulp by a moose and died the next day. As he was off without a human, there is no telling what created the conflict with the moose, but having seen Jasper chase one, I can imagine the moose being quite ticked off.

Everyone around here owns dogs and we all take advantage of the open space. Perhaps we need a local moose alert level, like "going to DefCon 1".

Think a good thought about Rupert the dog.
