    SANTA FE — A wandering bull moose was captured in downtown Santa Fe and relocated to a suitable habitat in northern New Mexico, authorities said Tuesday. State Game and Fish officials and Animal Service Officers for the city said the moose was spotted around 8 a.m. near Fort Marcy Park. Officers set up a perimeter to protect residents and pedestrians in the park, which is a popular walking area. The moose was sedated with a tranquilizer dart and loaded onto a trailer before being evaluated by a state Department of Game and Fish veterinarian and determined to be in good...

    It’s no gouda. A 74-year-old dairy farmer got creamed during a meltdown at his sprawling cheese warehouse in northern Italy on Sunday night when thousands of wheels of hard parmesan-style formaggio collapsed on top of him. Giacomo Chiapparini, the owner of the eponymous Chiapparini cheese-making company in Lombardy, was killed in the freak accident when giant shelves holding the 90lb wheels of grana padano cheese suddenly buckled. Chiapparini was using a machine to rotate and clean the cheese wheels at various stages of ripening when one of the metal shelves caved, creating a “domino effect,” firefighter Antonio Dusi told the...

    June 4 is National Cheese Day. Not to be confused with other popular cheese related holidays like grilled cheese day, cheesecake day, or mac and cheese day. This day is in reverence of the queen of all dairy, the big cheese. Cheese and its many varieties are celebrated on National Cheese Day on June 4. History of National Cheese Day Cheese making is an ancient, some might even say sacred, craft. So ancient in fact it predates recorded history. It is speculated that the magic of cheese making began somewhere around 8000BCE shortly after the domestication of animals. Archeological digs...

    A woman in Alaska recently got a major surprise when she found a moose making itself at home in her house. Barbara Nickels, of Soldotna, told AllGood News on Wednesday that she often leaves the door cracked so her dog, Jesse, can get out. But when she went to close the door after Jesse returned from his jaunt one day, Nickels said, she found that her pet had brought a large moose back in with him. “I think I stared at it for three or four second before it dawned on me — yes, he’s in the house,” she said...

    Warning! Warning! Moose are on the loose! And it turns out that a big culprit causing global warming could be none other than Bullwinkle or at least his real life cousins. The Washington Post eagerly issued this warning on Saturday in a story by Erin Blakemore, "Hungry moose fingered as possible factor in climate change." Don’t mess with moose. They’re big, they’re strong — and now researchers say they may be contributing to climate change. Yes, research suggests that moose may factor into a dramatic reduction in the amount of carbon stored in some forests. Wherever they feed, the large...

    Researchers claim that moose are potentially a leading cause of climate change and that the species should be balanced, suggesting they are "one of the biggest potential single sources of carbon emissions from wooded parts of Norway." The Norwegian University of Science and Technology studied moose in Norwegian forests for several years and concluded that the species have a major effect on vegetation growth and are altering the carbon cycle by dining on tree buds. "Moose are an ecosystem engineer in the forest ecosystem, and strongly impact everything from the species composition and nutrient availability in the forest. A grown...

    A Minnesota father slaughtered a 77-year-old convicted sex offender using a moose antler and shovel after he accused the victim of stalking his young daughter. Levi Axtell, 27, walked into at the sheriff's office covered in blood and with his head in his hands as he admitted killing Lawrence Scully - who was jailed for molesting a six-year-old girl in 1979. Axtell, from Cook County, Minnesota, had long been suspicious of Scully parking his vehicle at locations where children were present. In 2018 Axtell filed an order of protection against the elderly man which was initially granted but later dropped....

    "The Republican Party of 1912 decided it would be better off renominating William Howard Taft, even though its voters would have preferred another Roosevelt term. The resulting split ushered in Woodrow Wilson and the first academic globalists, whose bright ideas laid the groundwork for a second world war on the eve of the conclusion of the first. ... But, despite the obvious differences, we’re heading for a 1912-repeat, in which the Republican Party ignores its own voters. The Republican machine has no intention of letting us choose Trump again: He is not a uniparty team player. They’d rather lose an...

    NATIONAL MOUSSE DAY On November 30th, National Mousse Day serves up a delicious treat that can be savory or sweet. #NationalMousseDay What can we say about mousse?

This versatile dish lends itself well to both desserts and savory recipes. In fact, several types of mousse can be served at the same meal. From a smokey salmon mousse as the first course to a tart...

    Had the opportunity to attend my very first gun show at the Benton, AR Gun And Knife Show last weekend, along with some neighbors. It was a hoot! As gun ownership in Kalifornia is anything but easy, and especially so in Sillycon Valley, I'd never, in thirty-five years there, undertaken to attend such a show. But enough about that place. I'm told this was a comparatively small show. What surprised me first off was the variety of people attending: Families with small kids, all races, all ages, both genders.Good advice in general"An armed society is a polite society," as they...

Having made a previous commitment to attend a friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday and to be in the wedding party on Saturday, he didn’t...

    Once again hunters can register their moose online and submit tooth as proof.Moose season is underway this week and hunters are out in big numbers this year.The province issued 5,107 licences for the hunt, which runs until Sept. 24.That's the highest number since 1995. Dwayne Sabine, a biologist with the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development, said this year's increase was largely due to a drop in hunter success rates. "So essentially we were able to issue a few more licences to harvest the same number of moose that we expected to harvest over the last couple of years,"...
