A really big moose

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

I thought that Mac, the moose at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, was big. Mac stands 9.8 metres (32 feet) tall.

However Mac will seem puny compared to Stoorn, a wooden moose to be built in northern Sweden. Standing 45 metres tall, with his front legs in the county of Norrbotten and hind quarters in the county of Vasterbotten, Stoorn will also have a restaurant in his belly, a concert hall that can seat up to 350 people, conference rooms, and a spectacular view over the valleys below from Stoorn’s antlers.


I may not make a special trip to Moose Jaw to see Mac, but I would definitely consider flying to Norrbotten and Vasterbotten to see Stoorn.
