World-record rack!

Edmonton Sun - - COFFEE BREAK -

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.
