Contest #731: Mac the Moose, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada

Built in 1984, Max the Moose was designed to be a tourist attraction for the city of Moose Jaw. The construction process involved a steel frame covered with metal mesh and four coats of cement. Max is over 10 metres tall and weighs in around 10,000 kg.

For those wondering g about the name Moise Jaw, it comes from a Cree name for the place, moscâstani-sîpiy, meaning “a warm place by the river”. The first two syllables, moscâ-, sound remarkably like “moose jaw”.
