Everyone rushed to the windows of the small restaurant to see the moose run by. Normally they don’t come into town, but this poor animal giant had gotten confused, and raced down the street surprising all of us diners. At the end of the street, he swam out into the sea and rested on a small island before he was rescued by animal control experts. The runaway moose was the talk of Bonavista for weeks.
We have a lot of moose in Newfoundland. However, animals generally are not plentiful here.We have no deer, porcupines, skunks, or raccoons, and happily there are no snakes here !
