Moose at Pemaquid Lighthouse

If you were one of the lucky people to be having breakfast at the little cafe next to the Pemaquid lighthouse on Monday morning, you might have caught a glimpse of a beautiful bull moose that was acting like one of the tourists.

It was early in the morning, just before the park was set to open, and suddenly, there was a moose with a full set of antlers, just wandering around the lighthouse, apparently enjoying the view. Although park authorities attempted to chase him away, he showed no signs of being ready to leave. You can read the rest of the story HERE.

Male moose can be very aggressive at any time of the year, but especially now, during mating season. If you encounter a moose, stay out of its way, and it will usually leave on its own. If the moose seems to be causing trouble or becomes a potential danger to itself or others, call the local authorities and they will drive it away safely.
