Take a moose to lunch

When there's snow on the ground and the temperatures get low, the moose come to town. Generally it's easier for the moose to walk around in urban areas because of plowed and shoveled areas. They can easily reach trees and bushes that are good to eat from.

Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon was their choice today. I usually eat inside, but they liked the berries from the Mt Ash trees lining the parking lot. The many birds that winter over in Anchorage will have to find another restaurant. These two picked the trees clean.

Both were of pretty fair size. The female stayed back some and was a little hidden by lamp post, cars, etc. For most of the attention they were getting, they were pretty mellow.

Their reach to get the berries at the top of the trees was impressive.

But after a bit, I got a look and a snort, so I figured it was time for me to leave.
