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 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

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"

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

'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.
