A great curiosity was brought down from Stewart river a couple of days ago by Mr. W. H. Lawrence.
It consists of the horns and skulls of two moose bulls, interlocked and fastened so securely that the two animals
had eventually died without being able to separate. The animals had evidently been about equal size and it was
at the first charge their horns fastened in the deadly embrace which resulted in death. Their noses were almost
together and thus they stood until they fell from exhaustion. From the teeth-marks on the skulls and skeletons,
the hunters declare the carcases to have been eaten by bears. That it was at the first charge the animals became
involuntarily attached to each other is evidenced by the horns showing no other signs of collision. The curiosity
has been attracting a good deal of attention from the hunters, for while the accident is quite common among other
branches of the deer family, the peculiar form taken by the headgear of the moose was supposed to preclude the
possibility of interlocking.
