Don't ask why...its nuts... but I was wondering if anyone here knows if it is legal to own a moose? I'm in Pennsylvania if that matters. If you don't know, where would you recommend I look to find out? PA Fish & Game?

If you kill it first, yes.

Well, you can have the stupid pests that live in my backyard! Eating all my good tree bark during the winter.

Generally speaking WRT owning odd animals, generally there isn't a hard legal/non-legal line.

It mostly is how much paperwork and red tape the wildlife people want to put you through, and how much you feel like going through. ie. If you feel like becoming a certified zoo or nature preserve you can own pretty much anything.

Moose aren't at risk or anything, so I imagine it would mostly be you having to show you can take care of it and that you won't be captive hunting it or something.

Well, Rocky's best friend was Bullwinkle--but he didn't own him as a pet.

Go into this relationship on equal footing and it'll work out just fine.

Maybe this is common knowledge everywhere but in my little world, but why would anyone want to own a moose? Hell, couldn't you just go visit one at the zoo?
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 5:49:53 PM EDT
About 4 miles from me is a "farm" that has a number of exotic (for WNY) animals - Whitetail, Elk, Boar, and others. There is another maybe 6 miles away and others in the area. Here I believe it is legal, but they are in business. I'm not sure if you could own one like you would a horse.

The real question you want to ask is this:

Is it legal to own a Moose, and have sex with it?

No. I'm sorry.

In Louisian you can own anything as a pet as long as it is not native to the state...
I use to ride with my buddy the "dog catcher" and I was frightened to see the shit people around here have. Many, many tigers and big cats....

Perfectly legal. My Fiance' buys moose at the store all the time for her hair. Of course I get mine from the beer section.......

I like this topic.

There's a fundamental problem that your question fails to acknowledge: You can't own a moose. You can only be owned by a moose.

To you guys who ask why you would want to own a moose, I pose a better question:

Why wouldn't you want to own a moose?

DUPE. Use the search function. "Own a Moose" has been beat to death in GD.

Exactly. Its like a horse, except with room for the whole family.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 6:26:20 PM EDT
If you did "theoretically" own a moose, could anybody recommend a good gear stitcher that could sew MOLLE webbing all over the outside of the moose? What would you recommend camo wise, I think for large forest animals the CADPAT or woodland MARPAT would be best.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 6:30:59 PM EDT
I would imagine you'd have to talk to both fish and game, and livestock/agriculture. Keep in mind moose would probably considered dangerous game - do NOT be near them anywhere near the rut. There are stories of bull moose attempting to woo locomotives (Ok, the stories were from Newfies, but a 1500 lb bull moose is probably capable).

Is the moose in question preban or postban?

Is it the same type of moose used by Al Pacino in Heat?

Could it's skin be considered moosepat?

Did the moose try to draw down on you?

Do you only want to own a moose because Chuck Norris does?

Any more humorous ARFCOM cliches we can throw in?

I don't think so, unless the moose was bred from legally owned stock.

Hazy on the facts here, but Alaska law states that caribou (reindeer) cannot be owned by nonnatives. A guy in Palmer, trying to start a reindeer farm, battled that one for a decade before importing reindeer from Scandanavia.

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse

her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and

Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst

No. Even deer farms cannot keep deer that are native to the area that they are in. I don't think you'll find any states that have exceptions.
Link Posted: 12/21/2005 7:07:48 AM EDT
Actually none of the above in 100% correct. I spoke to a moose expert this morning who said a friend of his regularly drives two hours north just across the TN border where it is legal to date moose's. You can hire one as an escort or whatever for the evening, even take it home for the night, but it has to be home before 10AM. My friend says you need to pick it up in a pick-up truck or a convertible and if you go to a drive-in movie they will make you park in the back row. Keep that in mind.

Not in Berkely, CA. You must take out guardianship papers and show evidence of a proper domicile for said moose. You will henceforth be forever responsible for his well being and happiness. God help you if he develops a fondness for double mocha lattes.
