Early morning visitor

This morning we had a visitor in the backyard....can you guess who she is?

How about if I lighten the picture a little?

Yes, this cow moose was in our backyard causing my dogs to bark all morning while I was trying to get ready for work. Luckily they had already gone outside to do their business prior to her arrival. I stood on the back porch to take this picture and she just stared at me. My son came by later in the day and said she was laying in our neighbors front yard. I didn't see her at all when I got home. I hope she visits someone else tomorrow....I'm too busy for a morning chat.

Amazing! I can't even a imagine a large animal like that in my yard. Don't they get scared and run away from humans?

I was going to say deer but you seem to have more moose around and they certainly love your yard to be coming back lol
My dogs would be going crazy They do anyway whenever they hear other dogs outside.

Gosh how much snow do you have. We have none this year which is nice but strange!

I've never seen a moose in my yard thank goodness!

I have never heard of a Cow Moose. Wish I could see it better. Wow.. how scary it got in the yard where the dogs go. I hope they are safe. We have skunks and hubby build a little fenced in area outside the sider door so Annie can do her business and not be sprayed at night. Those are OUR cow mooses. lol

I remember having two of them on my driveway licking salt one morning when I went out to start my truck. Scared me to death!
