I hope they got the big guy down?

"Wow, this pull isn't going like the other two, it's like there's a moose on the line!"

I can't tell you what a moose wieghs, but I figure the mule must of been straining.

I didn't even know they could fly

I thought it was Bullwinkle J. Moose, and Rocky the Flying Squirrel

Scott,

'Tom' is used by someone else. Tom Baker is 'Tom Baker'

the average bull moose is 1200 lbs. that is a lot of weight to go unnoticed as you where pulling the wire. I wonder how long he was up there before anyone noticed the animal? I thought Tom Baker was Doctor Who.
