Mac the Moose, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan by 


What other roadside attraction would you expect in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan but the world’s largest moose? You can find Mac the Moose just off of the Trans Canada Highway (#1) at the Moose Jaw Visitors Information Center.

This sculpture stands 10 meters tall (32 ft) and weights about 9000 kg (10 tons) and was erected in May, 1984. The inside of Mac is a metal pipe framework with a metal mesh conforming to the structure’s contours. The entire body is covered with a cement coat. In 2007, Mac’s jaw fell off due to exposure to the Saskatchewan elements.

Mac the giant moose was named after a local Alderman named Les McKenzie who championed the project.

    Wow, Teresa, you got the moose in Moose Jaw! Great shot. Were you overrun with gophers while trying to get the shot? When I was there in July all I got was the gophers because I couldn’t get in the right position to take a shot like this. Cheers, Carol

  • Thank you Carol and yes I was. There is so many of them around the statue and it’s hard not to get distracted. They are so much fun to watch.
