Here in New Jersey we have lots of deer, not only in rural areas but even in highly populated parts of the state where you wouldn’t expect to find woodland critters. One even wandered into a local strip mall Laundromat a few years ago.
So you often see deer crossing signs as you drive along the Garden State Parkway, the NJ Turnpike, and various highways that crisscross the state.
On a recent trip to Maine when I passed countless moose crossing signs along the highways, I expected to see at least a moose or two in the wild.
But the only moose I came across was Lenny, billed as the world's only life-size chocolate moose. He was sculpted from 1700 pounds of fine grade milk chocolate in a mere four weeks back in 1997.
