Canada And Norway Battling Over World’s Tallest Moose Statues

When Norwegian artist Linda Bakke was commissioned for a traffic safety project with the State Road administration in 2015, she had a great idea in mind. She’d create a huge moose-shaped statue. As she began her research, Bakke discovered that one already existed in Canada, in Moose Jaw. Mac The Moose rises 32-feet tall, so Bakke added an extra foot to her Storelgen, joking that “it would be a little fun to beat Canada in something,” by building the world’s largest moose sculpture. Turns out, citizens in the Saskatchewan city aren’t too happy, so they’ve launched a GoFundMe in an effort to raise funds to build a larger statue to win back their claim to fame.
