This is the first pile of moose poop that I recall having been dropped on our sidewalk. So to document this event for my photo-a-day project, I thought I’d walk the yard to see how many other piles I could find. I counted 14 total. We had a lot of visitors during this period, and enough days with very little snow….

At this time of year, moose mainly eat twigs, so these droppings are woody, dry and not really repulsive. It looks like sawdust where some are crumbling apart.

Gift shops actually sell gifts partly made of moose poop, for example: Handmade Alaska moose poop jewelry and gifts!

This is about 2/3 of a single pile, and resembles a figure 8:
