Feb 14, 2009: Albino moose

IotD, always documenting the albino animals... so here is your albino moose. Don't know where the pics originated; no further information.

I wonder if this has meaning to the Canadian First People, the same way the White Buffalo for the Plains Indians and the White Deer for the Eastern Woodlands?

It does have meaning. Medicine man says "White moose, the other white meat"

I see this guy every day at the Moose Lodge. Drags his feet when he walks.

Soon, natural selection will lead to a moose population that is predominantly white--that is, until that pesky coal plant opens up next door...

I would say, "wow, that's cool!" . . .

but other people have already said it!

I want a stuffed one! a toy, that is . . .

http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/albinomoose.asp

eta: a search of Amazon shows 427 results from "moose" in "toys & games." Four hundred stuffted moosies and moosie toys? And not a single albino in the lot. 'Tho there is a white and gingham checked one; a red, white & green Christmas one, and sock monkey one. hmm.

You know ... I don't think I have any white stuffed moose. They're mostly shades of brown, although Zeus, the second Ty Beanie Baby Moose with the Sparkly antlers is pretty cool (Chocolate was the first beanie moose, I have him too), and I also have two larger Ty Blue Moose, (Twaks and Bloose). But you're absolutely right! This is moose racism!!
