Moose on Highway 101
Come up over a hill and right on the middle of the highway are 2 moose. One large cow and a smaller yearling got off the road faster then I could get my camera out.
I did have to slow down before reaching into the back for the camera. The cow went south and the little one went north. Roll'n really wanted to go and give a little chase.
If we had been in the bush I would have let him out, he will only chase for a short time, or if the moose turns around. If the moose stops he stops.
He likes to chase, but he knows better then to catch. Moose are a little bigger then he is.
He does like to attack, once they are down. Look, here is a youtube video called
We also saw our first bear of the season. We pulled to the side of the road to watch the little bear. The window on Roll'n side was down and he has jumped out of the window before. Not to go after a bear, he knows about bears. He is funny in the bush - a bear is the only animal he will bark at. As the bear leaves the side of the road and enters the bush Roll'n lets out 2 little barks just to tell the bear he better get going.
