Le combat des élans

Until 2015, the Canadian city of Moose Jaw was home to the world’s largest moose statue, Mac the Moose, standing at 10 meters tall. But in 2015 Norway erected its own moose sculpture, Storelgen, or “Big Elk”, located in Stor-Elvdal, and 30cm taller than Mac. A pair of Canadian comedians, Justin Reves and Greg Moore, have just asked the residents of Moose Jaw to fight back and “stick it to Oslo” by adding 31cm to Mac. They have set up a GoFundMe page to raise $50,000 to hire an engineer to increase Mac’s size. The city’s mayor answered their call with enthusiasm. But the municipality of Stor-Elvdal said they’re going to do “everything they can” to make sure Storelgen remains the world’s tallest moose.
