The Moose has landed in El Paso, Texas. That's right! Now the Moose live in the desert! Montwood Middle School, part of the Socorro Independent School District, adopted the Moose as its official mascot when it opened its doors last year for the first time.
This unusual mascot has been the topic of many discussions since it was adopted but now everyone enjoys the notoriety having such a unique mascot brings. The Moose is being spread throughout the district as the school successively competes in academic and athletic contests.
Are there any other 'Moose' schools that would like to correspond with ours? If you would like to share 'Moose Tales' with us contact Jack Seagrove at email@example.com We're looking forward to hearing from you fellow Moose.
- Mature male moose typically weigh around 1100lbs, but can get to 1400lbs or more, females weigh in around 800lbs (Jenny Craig where are you?)
-Moose chow down about 40-50 lbs of vegetation a day
- Their eyesight isn't the the best, but they have an excellent sense of smell
