Mac the Moose

Mac the Moose is a fibreglass moose in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. It is claimed to be the world's largest moose at 32 feet (9.8 m) feet tall and a weight of approximately 10 long tons (10 t).[1]

History[edit]

The giant moose is important to the city of Moose Jaw because it was one of its first tourist attractions. Moose Jaw now has many tourist attractions such as the tunnel tours, mineral spa and casino. The project to create Mac was completed in May 1984.[2] Mac was recently moved and is now located just off of the Trans-Canada highway next to the Moose Jaw visitors' center. Although Mac has been vandalized many times (once being painted blue and another physical damage was done),[1] he still stands, now surrounded by a fence, and represents Moose Jaw.
