You may have heard of a ball game called “Horse”, but how about “Moose”?
A family in the northeast of Chetwynd Parish looked at something that might fit this description Friday and managed to get it on camera.
Colleen Simpson’s family set up a tetherball pole in the back yard but couldn’t figure out why it kept knocking over the past few months.
“I woke up this morning to our local moose playing with the children’s tetherball,” she told News Gob.
“We couldn’t figure out why the bar was sometimes on the ground, but now we know!”
The video shows the elk enthusiastically hitting the ball around the bar with head and feet.
Simpson said the children were initially suspected, “but it turned out it wasn’t their fault”.
No word yet on how well the elk competes head-to-head (or hoof-to-hoof).
