Moose Takes a September Swim

One of the most beautiful things is when I see an animal in nature. I understand the importance of zoos for education and preservation, but I'm wrestle with the implications of keeping an animal caged. In New Hampshire, a local resident spotted something unusual, and yet completely common in nature... a moose swimming across a lake.
Can you imagine the sight? Apparently, moose are excellent swimmers. They can swim up to 6 mph. Moose don't like the heat and will spend hot days submerging their bodies in shallow waters of streams, lakes, or even mud pits.
