A big ol’ moose was spotted trodding through the deep snow behind Steamboat Resort’s (Colorado) mid-mountain snow stake cam, and the internet is absolutely eating it up.
The moose seems to be eating something placed behind a tree in frame of the camera. He appears to be a young bull.

I mentioned in that article, which you can check out here, that ski resorts should place a little bit of food near their snow stake cam to lure in moose and other wildlife for our viewing pleasure.
Here’s what I said:
“Is it irresponsible for ski resorts to put out a little bowl of food to attract moose during blizzards to their snow cams?
I don’t want to cause any issues, but watching a snow stake with two big ol’ moose in the background is even more entertaining than watching the snow by itself…”
Is it just pure coincidence that a moose was spotted munching on some kind of food in view of Steamboat’s snow cam just days later, or did somebody in their marketing team actually listen to my suggestion?
It’s inconclusive at this point. So, let me try something-
