You think moose are extra-large, dumb cows that like to walk through town on occasion.
There are two things every Anchorage visitor wants to see: the Aurora Borealis and a moose. I shouldn’t judge too much because when I first moved to Anchorage I was in the same situation, but now as a bona fide resident I can tease these silly, cow-chasing Outsiders.
Moose are definitely something to be wary of, dumb + huge = dangerous, but they aren’t all that special. Some towns have deer, we have moose. Actually, we have 1600 resident moose.
