In many regards, it's a different world in Alaska. For most Americans, the sight of a moose trapped and bellowing in the front lawn would be completely unheard of. But it's just another day at the office for the "Alaska State Troopers"

It's nice to know there are actually a LOOOOOOOOT of people with authority who are doing their jobs.

I was going to make a wise crack about Republicans but I won't. I need to be positive speaking.

But there's one thing I am positive about, those Republicans....shut up, Zee

Very common place when I lived in rural Vermont. The babies are so cute but even the adults are cute too. Yes, a 1,500 giant deer can be cute.
