I've never seen a white moose or even one with any white on it. I see by this link that they are just about everywhere but in very scarce numbers. Newfoundland hasa very large moose population and the white fellas are now Protected.

White moose are not common but they have been seen on a semi-frequent basis in the Vanderhoof, BC area.

Myself and a friend actually saw one on a fishing trip in Quebec a few years ago. It was at the edge of the lake we were trolling.
What a sight. Sure wished at the time we had a camera with us. We picked it out from the far shore and trolled across to see what it was, sure enough. It was a white moose cow.

There's a full body mount "white" moose for sale last time I was in Newport.,VT at the auction house. It actually looks more blonde to me. It's a sporting goods store in front and they do auctions in back. It was still there at Christmas time. Wright Enterprises for all you guys who are trying to give your wife a reason to divorce you. "Look honey, I bought a moose! It'll look great in the living room."

Those pictures are actually of two moose photographed in Wisconsin... I believe last year - maybe the year before. Same photos though.

An albino(white) moose was shot near Rocky Mountain House in Alberta around 1980. Quite a story in the Edmonton journal newspaper,and some controversy whether the guy should have shot it or not. Apparantly he was going to sell the hide to the highest bidder. The hide was white.
He shot it during a snowstorm,and said at first he thought it was a white horse.But he had a tag and license so he legally killed it. Many people argued he should have let such a rare animal survive.
What would you do??
