KK Alaska - electric bikes are fun,. chased or not chased.
What bike did you end up choosing?

Bull has seemed to have left the neighborhood without hassling any of the other neighbors..

Wife is still not back to riding her bike yet.

Thanks to all whom offered experiences and possible causes.

Ordered a RAD Fat tire shipped from Seattle have to use a freight forwarder! They shipped accessories separately against my instructions, they split shipping with me.

Bud has a RAD and he likes it. https://www.radpowerbikes.com/products/radrover-electric-fat-bike

Now here is some weird moose behavior. One has sent a lower leg and hoof into my yard two days running, via Honey HalfLab. Fresh, cut bone on both.

I wonder how they do that?

Yesterday's indicated it had been buried- I'm guessing a Honey stash.

I figured day before yesterday someone had poached that little bull that's been hanging around, but some dinner guests on their way home sent us a picture that evening of the bull just 200 yards up the road, so it wasn't him.

I'll tag on something else here from yesterday.

I took the pack out for a short walk, down the wide cut trail that borders my lot, over and down the hill to the mile-wide swamp below, then around the base of the hill on a game trail to the road and home - about a half mile.

That's about all Henry can do with his joint and leg problems. Henry is a 80-90 lb Lab/Pit mix that lives about 500 yards up the road, but we are keeping him for a few weeks while his people are Outside.

Henry and Honey were 40 yards ahead of me, when I looked to see what Chako Wunderwiener was sniffing at a couple feet in front of me, right in the trail.. He had his nose about an inch from a dead baby hare, just larger than my fist. I told him to "leave it", and he backed off a foot. The big dogs had completely missed it. Sometimes maybe it's an advantage to live with your nose 6 inches off the ground?

Not wanting the other dogs to eat it or roll in it later, I went to pick it up. When I touched it, the little bastid was off like a shot. Well, baby hares just ain't all that fast. But they sure can hold real still! If I'd known it was still alive, I had my phone camera with me.

Chako was gaining on it and would have caught it, but I yelled no and he stopped and came back from 20 feet out.

He's the most mindful Dachshund I've ever been around.

Must be something wrong with that boy.....

You can see Henry's right hind is all messed up. Need to do some trail clearing again. smile.

First question that popped into my mind was how can you tell if a moose is acting weird?

Ive had LOTS more "adventures" with moose than with bears....

Bull migrated out of the neighborhood. Stands by the highway watching cars go by

Wife is back to riding her ebike. For those on the fence about ebikes - they are fun! shopping for one for me now.

Thanks Ingwe for the chuckle when reading your question about "how can you tell if a moose is acting weird".
