    SHAWANO, WI – A Shawano Downtown business recently had an unexpected visitor. A deer ended up inside a Main Street business last week. It may sound like the start of a bad joke, but for awhile, it was no laughing matter. Duane Schultz owns Kim’s Discount store on Main Street. He says Thursday was a day that he will never forget. A customer just walked out the door and he said a few minutes later he heard a crash. “A deer came into the door and it stopped at the table and looked at me,” he said. “All I could...
  • Introducing moose poop art and the delightfully practical woman who creates it [Maine]

    Sometimes, humanity gets me down. But then I watch a video like the one below about a Maine woman who makes art from moose poop and I cheer right up. Because when it comes to genuinely fresh ideas these days, there don't seem to be that many. But a clock made from cervid scat? A (very) real Poo Poo Platter? Now that's a new one. The idea is the brainchild of artist Mary Winchenbach, who finds the moose leavings in the woods around her house in Maine. So yes, this is a very local product.

    Moose put down after attacking a woman in Breckenridge by: Jenna Carroll BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (KDVR) — A moose was put down in Breckenridge after attacking a woman on a street in front of her home Saturday evening.

    Curtis Phelps had just taken out the trash on the morning of Jan. 11 when he spotted something heading his way out of the corner of his eye. It turned out to be a large bull moose, and Phelps — knowing the animals can be aggressive — quickly shut himself back inside the shed. According to Curtis’ wife Amy, her husband immediately called her on his mobile phone — but she ignored the call, thinking it was accidental. “I had no clue that the poor thing was stuck in there,” she said of her husband, the Associated Press reported. Curtis,...

    Lost to the outside world for a generation—and feared extinct—a small deer-like species with tiny fangs has been photographed tiptoeing through a dry lowland forest in southern Vietnam... The silver-backed chevrotain, also known as the Vietnamese mouse-deer, is about the size of a large rabbit, with a silver sheen on its rump. The creatures have tusk-like incisors, visible in the new photographs of the animals. Because chevrotains lack horns or antlers, and the fangs are especially long in males, scientists think the males use them to compete for territory and mates.

    A very large animal got stuck in a New Hampshire pool Tuesday night -- and was not a-moosed. A young bull moose waded into the backyard pool and couldn't climb out for hours, because it didn't have stairs. Officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department swooped in to save the moose, eventually coaxing it out of the pool by placing a wooden set of stairs underwater. After emerging from the water, the moose took off into the woods.

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...
