Moose frolic through backyard sprinkler in Government Hill

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - If not for the thick brown hair and the awkward quadripedal gallop, you might mistake this moose calf for a school kid frolicking in the sprinkler on a hot summer day.

Moose cow and calf frolic in sprinkler in Government Hill.

"They basically live back there," says Disa Vice, the homeowner who shot the video. "They have determined our sprinklers are their water source."

Vice said she's been observing them for the past five days slurping up the water and tromping around the yard.

In the video, the calf appears to be shuddering with excitement as it passes through the stream of water. Then, it runs right back through it in the other direction.
