Facts About Moose
Posted on July 11 2019
Adult moose are beautiful animals that stand tall at 4-6 feet tall with antlers weighing at least 40 pounds. Moose are the largest members of the cervid family weighing between 790 (female) -1400 (male) pounds.
If moose see shrubs, they will try to jump a fence up to 8 feet high. This is why a fence will need to be at least 8 feet high to block moose from eating crops in gardens.
Adult moose can run as fast as 35 miles per hour. They are excellent swimmers and can cross large expanses swimming up to 6 miles per hour for two hours at one time.
Moose may look like slow and gentle animals; but they can cause serious damage on lawns and gardens. Protect landscapes from moose with fencing, the best wildlife management solution.
