Tommy The Moose


Yesterday I got a book in the mail from the Smithville Mansion. It has a picture of February the Moose in it! I will scan the picture and post it here for the world to see within the next day or two. I found this picture of John Connell riding a moose on Google Images. According to a blog I found, Ruth wrote that Connell knew how to trap wild moose without harming them and was responsible for bringing moose to Newfoundland where they were not native. She said the animal in the picture was named Tommy. See my older posts for other vintage tame moose pictures!
