“The Moose is Loose!” by brett101

“The Moose is Loose!”

I don’t hide my love of the moose and I had to take advantage of the fact that he is still out in the house before being put away until next winter plus I can experiment with editing. Well, that and I honestly didn’t have any other options for photos today because, frankly, I just didn’t get out and about. I look forward to the weekends when I can go exploring for photo opportunities. [11 January 2019]

“Before you rip off three feet of toilet paper, consider that each year 500,000 acres of virgin boreal forest in northern Alberta and Ontario are being clear-cut to make the stuff. These forests are home to some 500 First Nation communities, as well as caribou and bears, moose and wolves, and, in the summertime, billions of songbirds.”

I think that this moose has character, a bit zany but still necessary

It's an excellent shot - no wonder you look forward to him coming out every year!
I rather disagree with your quote though since both my sister and brother-in-law work for forestry in British Columbia. Chances are that the wood cut to make TP is not from old growth virgin forests but from trees that have been replanted. Canadians take pride in our forests and plant three trees for every one that is cut down.
(It's the clear cutting in agriculture that drives me nuts - those trees are never re-planted!!)

@farmreporter - Thanks Wendy and I have definitely heard of the 3:1 replacement effort and it is definitely laudable!
