“…or moose anything, but I think the understanding is that if they can preserve the corridor with things like this … then I think there’s a good chance the Nova Scotia population will be replenished.”
— Derek Burney, former Canadian ambassador to the United States and chief of staff to Brian Mulroney when he was prime minister.
CBC reports that Mr. Burney and his wife Joan recently donated 316 hectares of their own private land along the boundary of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to be used as a mating area for our hairy, antlered friends, a scheme they are calling the Moose Sex Project. (Any punk band out there searching for just the right name? You’re welcome.)
In addition to helping an endangered species thrive and multiply, these spacious new trysting grounds will go a long way toward squelching any possible human-moose marriage attempts, which should come as comforting news to Rand Paul (even if he swears he was joking. )
