Well folks our visiting friend (MR.Moose) had to be put down in the beautiful hills of Steuben in late afternoon on wed 10-20-2010 by the correct State officials. Seems problems develop in their brains from infestation of parasites. After careful monitoring of the animal it was of best interest for the land owners and public to put this beauty to rest. Many thanks go out to Mr. Moose for the opportunity for many people to observe an animal of this nature to be right here in our back yards. Thanks go out to those who supplied GATOR transportation up into the best viewing points. On a better note another one of these beauties I hear tell is in the Kayuta Lake area and does have a collar about it's neck. Just remember folks these are wild animals so do not under estimate their potential,also do not provoke them in any way. Till next time with Tales of the north country. Good Day, Bruce Phelps ,Remsen N.Y.
