VIDEO: Pair of Moose Enjoy Post-Halloween Pumpkin On Man's Doorstep
November 17, 2020
Every year about this time, pumpkin-spice-mania seizes the whole world in its grip. And for months and months, all anybody can do is drink pumpkin-spice lattes, buy pumpkin-spice-scented candles, and eat pumpkin-spice-flavored Spam.
It has actually gotten so out of hand that the animal kingdom has started to get in on it. Just look at these two moose happily munching their pumpkin-spice-flavored pumpkins!
A man in Wasila, Alaska heard something outside while has watching TV. Then his dogs started barking. When he opened his door to see the source of the commotion, he found an adult female moose and her calf eating pumpkins on his porch.
It turns out this is something of a tradition in Alaska, where folks will often leave their old jack-o-lanterns out for moose to eat. The guy who shot this video does so every year, and this time he was ready for the photo op.
Shooting from the (relative) safety of his porch, the man managed to get some great photo of Mom and Baby Moose sharing the delicious pumpkin.
Or, and we realize there's not a huge likelihood of this, but hear us out: what if they're not moose at all, but trick-or-treaters in very elaborate and realistic costumes?
See the video below, and comment if you've ever found a moose in your pumpkin patch!
