Attached is a picture of a moose that got caught up in the lines while a crew in Alaska was pulling in new overhead power lines.

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

Bill, I didn't think Tom Baker was a member here. Is he?

Tom's the one that found the "aluminum hats" a couple of years back, Ryan. He's been here since nearly the beginning [Linked Image] His member name is just "Tom"

Ryan,

Yes, Tom's a Member here, but it's been awhile since he posted anything.

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.
