From Jim Alexander

Richard, Mark, and all,
Interesting moose tales. I'll take Pat White's word about a moose on Carson & Barnes Circus. What I recall about moose is that they seem to be difficult to care for. There was a young moose at Lincoln Park Zoo around 1961 but wasn't around for long. The Milwaukee Zoo was known for their moose herd. They were supplied with browse from the Park Dept. and they would also be fed banana peels (substitute for aquatic plants). The Columbus Zoo has had a pair moose for several years.
Maybe they can be trained but first can they be maintained? Do Ray Pawley and Mark know anymore about the LPZ moose. Ken Kawata can help about the Milwaukee herd and more.
