Maine's Mystery Moose
Read in today's Lewiston Sun Journal about the "Mystery Moose" of Maine.
Newspapers in Texas, Minnesota and Pennsylvania have carried stories about hunters' run-ins with Maine's mystery or "Specter Moose." He's white or dirty gray, twice normal size and typically just a bit too far from any gun's reach or so swift he disappears in a blink. (The director at the online Museum of Hoaxes called it "a moose version of Moby Dick.")A discussion of this article is going on over at Cryptomundo.
After a sighting in 1900, the Minnesota Freeborn County Standard declared the mega-moose a "wonder of sportsmen in northern Maine since 1891."
The Pennsylvania Charleroi Mail reported on a "gigantic beast ... ten to fifteen feet high, dirty white in color, brandishing immense antlers" in 1938. [Link]
