MOOSE JAW, Sask. — Mac the Moose has had a boost and is once again the tallest in the land.
A crew of workers with ropes perched themselves high in a cherry picker and on top of a truck crane to carefully attach a new set of antlers on the roadside attraction in Moose Jaw Tuesday.
The larger rack means Mac is once again the tallest moose statue in the world.
The city discovered in January that Mac was a bit too short for the accolade, because a shiny silver ungulate sculpture in east-central Norway had surpassed him by 30 cm.
The revelation resulted in a plan to dethrone the rival by building Mac a bigger rack.
“I think he looks distinguished,” Tourism Moose Jaw’s executive director, Jacki L’heureux-mason, said Tuesday.
