Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada: Mac, World's Tallest Moose

Built in 1965. An especially impressive sight given that everything around him is flat. Mac received "antler enhancement surgery" in 2019 to raise him from 32 to 34 feet tall, topping a Norwegian rival moose.

Mac, North America's Largest Moose

Mac is undergoing antler enhancement. A town in Norway built a moose that was 8-inches taller than Mac. So in Spring 2019, the folks of Moose Jaw removed Macs antlers to have them enlarged. The surgery is expected to be completed by Fall 2019.

Mac the Moose, World's Largest.

Mac the Moose, World's Largest

The visitor's center in Moose Jaw hosts Mac, the World's Biggest Moose. Mac the Moose stands right next to the road, so you can't miss him. If you're in the area, this is a nice break from the monotony of Saskatchewan. The grounds are clean and well kept. Mac is looking good!

World's Largest Moose.

Mac the Moose

Mac the Moose is the World's Largest Moose Statue, made of metal piping, mesh and cement. It is about 32 feet tall and weighs about 10 tons. It was completed in May 1984.

Recently, Mac the Moose's jaw fell off, and it now sits in the visitor's center, where t-shirts are being sold to raise money to replace it again.

Moose Statue

There is a cool moose statue in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, along the Trans-Canada highway in the southern part of the province. It is made of concrete over a metal frame, I believe, and the local folks have named it Mac. It is a rather homely statue, but a welcome break from the monotony of the plains.
