The Bull Moose Analysis

Down from the purple mist of trees on the mountain,lurching through forests of white spruce and cedar,stumbling through tamarack swamps,

came the bull moose

to be stopped at last by a pole-fenced pasture.Too tired to turn or, perhaps, aware

there was no place left to go, he stood with the cattle.

They, scenting the musk of death, seeing his great headlike the ritual mask of a blood god, moved to the other endof the field, and waited.The neighbours heard of it, and by afternooncars lined the road. The children teased him

with alder switches and he gazed at themlike an old, tolerant collie. The woman askedif he could have escaped from a Fair.The oldest man in the parish remembered seeinga gelded moose yoked with an ox for plowing.

The young men snickered and tried to pour beer

down his throat, while their girl friends took their pictures.And the bull moose let them stroke his tick-ravaged flanks,let them pry open his jaws with bottles, let a giggling girl

plant a little purple capof thistles on his head.When the wardens came, everyone agreed it was a shameto shoot anything so shaggy and cuddlesome.

He looked like the kind of pet

women put to bed with their sons.So they held their fire. But just as the sun dropped in the riverthe bull moose gathered his strengthlike a scaffolded king, straightened and lifted his hornsso that even the wardens backed away as they raised their rifles.When he roared, people ran to their cars. All the young menleaned on their automobile horns as he toppled.
