"Have you seen a moose?" This question seems to nearly always find its way into most conversations in New Hampshire. Where are they? Almost nobody I know has seen one in several years. Yes, there is an occasional sighting, but where are all of the moose that are supposed to inhabit this state in multitudes. Is this state wasting taxpayer's dollars warning drivers of moose crossing the highways? I keep looking, others are looking, in fact it appears as though everyone up here is looking for the elusive moose.
I think I have an answer to where the moose have gone. People are asking the wrong question. They should be asking, "Have you seen the tiger?" Are tigers decimating our moose population?
So, beginning now, start looking for a tiger. Maybe you'll see a moose!
Until next time...
