Record snowfall around Anchorage, Alaska mean the moose are coming to town, this year in what seem to be heavier numbers. More moose can mean collisions with cars and not-so-pleasant encounters with people and pets. Photo Credit: rkeefer via Flickr.

Wherever you go there once was a forest.

Trees are the lungs of the earth.

So beautiful. I have been to Alaska so many times I've lost count and it is indeed God's country as I have seen many of types of wildlife such as this, roaming free!

They seem to be getting more numerous south of the Canadian-US border. In north central Washington State we are seeing consistently larger populations. On two occaisions they were in my yard and on one occasion a rutting bull demolished young trees in my mother's back yard.

By the way, what we call "Moose" is the Americas are called "Elk" in Europe. There, what we call Elk is often referred to by its Native American name of Wapiti. So when you are watching one of those European produced wildlife specials and hear them call a moose an elk, you'll know you are both right.

Just remember, humans are forcing all animals from their habitat.....too much building...the more space we take, the less animals have. We need to learn to coexist with them...
