Big Moose
Ken Faulks

The moose is the largest of all deer species, standing about five to six and a half feet tall.

They are found in almost every forest in Canada, from the eastern tip of Newfoundland and Labrador to the border of Alaska with the exception of the Arctic and Vancouver Island. Moose tend to live near bodies of water such as lakes, muskegs and the streams of the boreal forest.

Moose was important to the Native American people. The meat was made into a type of dried jerky called pemmican. The hides were made into leather for moccasins and other ornamental wear and decorations.
