Just ’cause it’s Friday: An insanely happy moose family playing in sprinklers

What do you call a group of moose frolicking through a sprinkler? I dunno, pure joy, maybe? Because that’s what we’re feeling watching this momma moose and her babies have a wicked good time prancing back and forth across a family’s front lawn.

The weather was crazy all through the winter and spring, and now that summers quickly approaching, well, the weather’s still kinda insane. It’s particularly warm in Alaska right now, where we find these moose.The temperature reached the low 70s, which is unusual, and the poor moose were feeling the little heat wave. That’s when Candice Helm noticed that this moose family had wandered into her front yard, so she did the only logical thing. She turned on her sprinklers.

“They just strolled around the house and looked really hot,” Helm told her local news station, “So we turned on the sprinklers and they were happy.”

It’s a good thing she did, because otherwise we wouldn’t have this magical video of these baby moose playing. The moose are happy, and we’re happy, too. A very happy Friday, indeed.
