So, for reasons that entirely escape me,
A group of North American moose (Alces alces), ten in number, were released in 1910 in New Zealand.
Last official encounter was in 1952, when some poor moose ate a bullet, but there have been alleged contacts ever since, including this one potential ( photographed above) back in March.
So, my Canadian brethren...because us Canucks know Moose like Bo Knows baseball...is this a very young Canadian Moose gone Kiwi...or just a deer?
Note: most of those in the "young moose" camp point to the "horse like snout". To me (whose actually seen a few moose close up in my time), the big eyeball seems more persuasive evidence.
