Dr. Haigh was born in Kenya, where he worked with elephants and other African wildlife. Later he was offered a job in Canada, a place that he had never been and knew nothing about. He took the position as a zoo and wildlife veterinarian at the University of Saskatchewan's Western College of Veterinary Medicine. The skills that he learned in Africa like how to use a blow pipe became very useful in the wilds when trying to sedate moose and give vaccinations to zoo animals.
Jerry Haigh had to brainstorm with other veterinarians to figure how to do things that had never been done before with moose, like getting its body weight. He developed a very unusual solution to this need.
There is amazing information about the functions and problems connected their antlers, and their intriguing sex lives. I learned about the Jacobsen's organ (olfactory) and its intriguing function. How was this missed in my year's course in college of animal behavior? This book gets more interesting chapter by chapter. My favorite chapter is "Weird and Wonderful".
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in large animal veterinary medicine and any one curious about moose.
I received this book from the publishers and as a win in the GoodReads but that did not affect my review in any way.
