Art of Specter Moose

Artist's deception of the Specter Moose

The Specter Moose is a very large, heavy , white moose from the state of Maine, where it is known to pop up in town before bad things happen, similar to the Mothman.



History[]

The specter moose was first seen in 1891, by a hunting guide near Lobster lake in Maine. The Specter Moose was also sighted twice again, the second time in which the Specter Moose had been shot at by a hunter who fired Slugs at him. The slugs reportedly had no effect and bounced off, and the Moose charged at him. The next year, a New York sportsman named Howard Van Ness was hunting. He shot the moose, who he described as weighing a ton, being as tall as a camel, with magnificent antlers. The moose had not been affected and again, came at Van Ness.

The moose was not seen again until 1985, when a taxidermist spotted the moose. The moose was seen yet again in 1899, where Gilman Brown saw the moose-and counted 22 points on each side. A normal moose only has 8-12
