Moose Wars

Mac the Moose, of Moose Jaw, Canada, was the world’s tallest moose sculpture at 32′-2″ until  he was dethroned in 2015 by a Norwegian chrome moose  (pictured above). He resides at a rest stop off the RV3 road in Stor-Elvdal, Norway, and stands 33′-1″ tall .

Residents of Moose Jaw were pissed, so they replaced Mac’s antlers with larger ones in 2019. Mac now stands at 34 feet tall. Here he is.

Mac attracted national attention in 2004 when part of his jaw fell off.
