Festival honoring moose celebrates 25th anniversary

The Associated Press

PITTSBURG (AP) — The 25th celebration of the North County Moose Festival is underway, allowing residents and visitors to compete in moose calling and sample moose chili.

The festival kicked off Friday in Colebrook, New Hampshire, and continues Saturday with activities in Pittsburg, New Hampshire, and Canaan, Vermont. All three towns are near the Canadian border.

The weekend also features an antique car show, local music performances, a maple syrup tasting contest and wagon tours.

New Hampshire is home to about 4,000 moose. The population is down about half from a decade ago, but moose are not considered endangered or threatened in New Hampshire. More than 8,000 people submitted applications for this year's moose hunt, held in October, but the state awarded just 71 permits.
