This is both humorous and interesting. It seems that likenesses done in stone draw the attention of animals as well as people!

Wildlife Management: The Moose and the Buffalo? | Wildlife News and Habitat Management

"Wild animals, like people, will always have the urge to do what comes naturally—and it all depends on how the mood strikes! Luckily for wildlife biologist, wild animals usually have no trouble keeping the population growing if suitable habitat is available for the species. Every wildlife species has a defined breeding period, and during this time animals act much different than they do during the remainder of the year."

Are these the same animals you find in Norway?

I know the norwegian name. They look similar.

If they are, the males go completely insane when it's rutting time.

Yes, this is the same hormonally insane animal!

Yeah.

Those things are mental. They chase skiers up trees and so on.
Out there the locals are pretty worried about them, since they are actually massive animals. And they are head height when you are driving along. So if you hit one in a car, you will have (500+ kg(?)) of stationary animal in your face.

By the sounds of it, your days (and presumably the moose's) are numbered from this point on.

Why jack.... this is hysterical.... talk about being hard up I guess. This is like the 4th thread in one day that's left me laughing out loud in front of a computer.
