This was the 13th photo uploaded by COY, less than a year ago. When I saw the photo, that I uploaded yesterday as 'lemon mousse', it was my memory of this photo, and the comments, that inspired me to paraphrase it. COY has come a long way since this upload, but I do hope that he has not lost his sense of humour. However, they may have been interpreted, my intentions were not intended to be harmful to anybody. I simply remembered the early posting and remembered the aftermath as being completely bizarre.

I forgot to add that the folks from the other prairie provinces, Sasquatch and Tarsands, have more sense eh. Everyone knows there are meeses (they love cheese) and geeses in Canada eh, but they are not related to the mooses.

Well, you must know, Mr. Canadian Game Warden, that those Manitobans are full of you know what, eh. I see that you are earning your government salary, which is not too small, by straightening those sillies on Pixdaus eh. Snow Moose indeed!!

Interestingly, I found this site after reading "Manitoba Toby's" comments above on Yahoo. I am sure that Manitoba Toby, if that is his real name, was attempting to be funny in his comments, but unfortunately there is no such thing as a snow moose, or meese, and there are no Canadian government regulations or restrictions on them. Albino moose do occur throughout their North American range from Alaska to Maine and across all of Canada. They are rare but known from everywhere. One characteristic of an albino moose, or albino of any animal, is the presence of pink eyes.

Very clever, quest4tvl5a... :)

That's a good one, Quest!

Snow Meese? I think they are vanilla mousses; the winter counterpart of the chocolate mousse!

I've never seen a Snow Moose, but, hey, I might have seen one without knowing that I have seen one; white against white is all just - white...

Thank you connie, skip, Manitoba Toby and Mary for you comments. I haven't done many postings as of yet. Really just getting started. Seems like most of the photos that I get my hands on are not the best of photographic quality.However; I find the subject matter of interest. I am as much into content as I am into quality. While I have been on this site for only a short while. I love it and learn something each day. Monitoba Toby taught me something about "Meeses" the plural for Meese. ha, ha. Yes, yes and yes some people are very quick whith that negative button. I do not downvote. If I do not like a photo then I just leave it alone. You all know the old saying "If you can't say something good about a person, then don't say anything" I think that should be followed here on Pixdaus as well.

That would put a new meaning to the term, 'I'll tear you meeses to pieces'. Not that I'd do that though...

While it is unusual to see these animals as far south as Michigan they are not albinos at all, but common Canadian Snow Meese ( the plural of Moose ). The Snow Moose, like the Arctic Fox, the Ptarmigan, the Arctic Wolf and numerous other animals of the far north, turns white during the winter months in order to blend in with its surroundings. Snow Meese were once endangered, but the Candian Government placed strict limits on hunting and trapping them in the 1960s and their numbers have rebounded dramatically, which might account for these two animals being so far from their normal range.

Great photo Coy! this is one of those pics where the quality is not as important as the subject matter, and definitely worth posting, but I think some people are too quick with the minus button, and don't take the time to see what's there.

I agree...extremely rare. Who cares about the quality of the photo when we get to see a photo of a rare occurence.

Exremely rare. To see two together is almost beyound believe. This was taken on the highway just north of the Wisconsin border near Marenisco. Michigan.. It was taken by a motorist on the quick. so it is not the best photo in the world, but he captured them and that was great.....
