It's SO HOT, a moose is in the kiddy pool!


You heard me. [slooosh!]


OK, sender-inner, I promise I won't use your name, as you requested. But you know who you are... ;)

what the bleen is he doing?

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:13 AM

LOL! How adorable! He's pretty smart to go find the closest swimmin' hole to cool off in.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:15 AM

Yay! I love the Maine shout-outs!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:18 AM

I see moose - but where is squirrel?

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:19 AM

Awesome pic! Does this fella visit you often? Wish I had a moose friend.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:20 AM

Just felt the need to cool his hooves - aahh!!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:20 AM

umm...What does he think he is doing in that top picture? He is not swimming in my pool (not that I have one).

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:23 AM

Wow, that's pretty cool. I guess I'd wash it out real good before the kiddies used it again.

Interesting, because it has been beautiful in Boston! I <3 75-80 degree summers!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:24 AM

Um, excuse me, waiter - there's a moose in my soup!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:32 AM

I think that moose (mooses?) are just too cute. It's like they're so ugly, that they've come right around to cute! And I have to say, I drove to Maine, from New Jersey (WOOT NJ!) and was soooo disappointed that I didnt' see one single moose!

Yes, my name is really Cricket
 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:37 AM

He needs a frosty drink with a straw, preferably out of one of those National Lampoon Vacation mugs.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:40 AM

My sister sent me this same pic, but she said it was hot in Montana. Hmmmm.....

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:45 AM


Does anyone else remember that children's book, "There's a Moose in the Garden!"?

I can't find it. It used to be one of my faves.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:45 AM

Bit of jpg artifactery there (especially on pic 2)? Or is that moose made out of legos?

(I know, I know -- I can be so CRITICAL!!!)

Yeah, moose like wetlands, so water-seeking behavior on their part doesn't surprise me. Even so, I'd freak out if this were my backyard.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:50 AM

Awesome! Oh that is so cute. Silly moo-moo!

meacup- lol!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:50 AM

meatcup - you rack!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:52 AM

why can't he just use the pool at Whassamatta U.?

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 10:52 AM

poor moO!
someone get him some more water in that pool!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Haha! =]
That is so adorable!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:09 AM

Sorry to rain on your parade, but these pictures were actually taken in Lincoln Montana around the end of July when the temperatures were in the upper 90's.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:19 AM

Which state was this picture shot?

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:25 AM

Aw, I lived in Montana for three years and never saw a moose. No fair.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:29 AM

Sorry, I just can't find this cute. A moose should not be in such a small enclosure. Really, he has no room to swim in there.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Next thing this moose is going to want is a Bahama Mama!
Mooses are coooool.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:31 AM

I am from Montana, too. And I believe this was in Lincoln, MT.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:33 AM

Is this one of those "If you give a moose a kiddy pool, then he is going to want a margarita" type of moments.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:49 AM

A moos once oosed mi swimmin pool....

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:49 AM

so if i put up a kiddie pool in my yard, will it attract meese? (i'm guessing not, as i live in NJ [YmnirCricket-W00T!]. actually, i'll probably wind up with bears.)

lolz! too too funny, whatever state it's from.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:52 AM

Oh waiter, there is a kiddie pool on my chocolate mousse.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:57 AM

If I set up a kiddie pool in my yard I wouldn't get meese. I would get alligators. Or kids...but really, what's the difference?

Aww...southern Louisiana. Moose-free.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:57 AM

You can lead a moose to water but you can't make him swim.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 11:58 AM


A Møøse once bit my sister ...

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:03 PM

Wow that moose gets around I found him in Canada and Montana and aparently in MAine tho I didn't find that one on line.

anyone else with links to a news story??? Mine were both on blogs and were received by the posters from other people. No way to tell where the moose really was. Though after living in Montana it certainly looks like up along the Canadian border but could easily be in MAine or Canada or any of the states that share a border with Canada

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:07 PM

llism and suda-
moose bytes kan be pretty nasti!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:11 PM

Well, another one did it in Alaska - a cute little mooselet: http://alaskaonline.com/about/photos/wildlife/story/5111434p-5038207c.html

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:12 PM

One eyed daruma I found that one too and this moose showed up at a pool in Wyoming too. Hehehe So who knows he could really be from alaska for all we know.. but hey. It's a moose in a pool... how often do you really see it like two times well this time over and over in different states. and the moose drinking out of the back yard pool.

Will the real Moose state please stand up.

Alright I will stop.
Back to the cute people. and face it that pic is Hilarious.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:26 PM

Curse you, TFSM, you beat me to it!

For years I've been writing "Mind you, moose bites can be pretty nasty..." on any white board I can. Except at school, where APPARENTLY the instructors want to use the white board :P

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:36 PM

uh-oh. moose in the kitchen!


 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:36 PM

One Eyed Daruma -
if we had meeces around here, i would put little blow up kiddie pools ALL over my yard to attrack a sweet little moose-ette like that to my yard! i LOVE that pic!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:39 PM

I bet if you went to school near the fjords you could write about Moose all day at school. ;)

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:42 PM

Anyone know that book by Arlo Guthrie?



"Mooses come walking up over the hill.
Mooses come walking, they rarely stand still.
Mooses come walking; they walk where they will...."

That's all I can remember of it. I do know that I sent it to my nevvie last year for Cutemas.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:42 PM

I love heem! Wish I had a pet moose...

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:43 PM

Hope there was water! Owners, don't forget to refill, please.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:43 PM

No realli! She was karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an Interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist," "Fillings of Passion," "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink."

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:50 PM

Can't be Maine. It'd be "wikkid wahm" instead of hot.

meatcup, Afraid -- HA!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:54 PM

mooses scare me I am afraid I would be hoping the moose would mosey on.

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 12:59 PM

Wow, that's amazing!

 |  Aug 15, 2007 at 01:10 PM

It reminds me of the book, Have you ever seen a moose taking a bath. My nieces beg me to read that one over and over again when they come over. http://www.amazon.com/Have-Ever-Seen-Moose-Taking/dp/0970953313
