From a Moose Hunting Trip That Went Wrong-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: This is a photograph of a
hunter tied to the top of a pickup truck with what appears to be three moose celebrating
inside the cab after a
good day of hunting.
The Truth: This photograph is an obvious but clever and humorous
digital manipulation. Surprisingly, we have gotten a lot of
inquiries as to whether or not it was real.
A close examination of the photograph revealed that the moose head on
the left was pasted into the photo but no body was visible from beyond
the base of its neck. Also, the shadows below the heads are
not at the same angle. The shadow just below the moose head
on the right is angled toward the left and the shadow below the moose
head on the left is pointing toward the right. The angles of all
three shadows should be the same.
A moose normally stands six to seven feet and it is doubtful
that one moose would fit inside such a vehicle. It is highly unlikely
that three creatures of this size would fit in the cab this truck.
