Despite the fact that the Assiniboine Park and Zoo has never before had a Moose enclosure (at least during my lifetime) they had quite a few Moose running loose today.
The Manitoba Moose and the Assiniboine Park and Zoo had a promo today which worked well as it was Louis Riel Day as well as the fact that the temps were hovering around zero degrees. Fans had a chance to meet members of the AHL squad for about a hour and a half this afternoon. The players were spread throughout the Journey to Churchill exhibit.
The Moose continue to do a number of events in the community and it is clear from their crowds at the MTS Centre (9th in average attendance in the AHL; 9,000 and 10,000 in their two matinee games this past weekend) that they have become a hit in the community.
