On the animal terms - how we show our moose!
At Räntemåla Gård, we let the moose be as wild as possible. Therefore, we do not take you as a visitor into the enclosure, we do not drive with any carriages or let our guests walk freely along our large fences.
We want as far as possible to let the moose be wild and decide for themselves if and when they want to show up.
The moose live together in a large enclosure, with lots of natural vegetation for them to eat. Ponds to swim and cool off in. There is natural wind and weather protection, cooling shade in dense forest and 30 hectares of large areas to move around.
All year round we feed them with a special pellets. An adapted feed filled with important and useful vitamins and minerals to supplement the natural intake. The moose love this pellets, and some of them also like to munch on apples and carrots. Maybe out of your hand?
The moose are coming!
Sometimes just one, sometimes many. We feed them at five every afternoon during the summer, and they have got used to this.
They are calm and secure and often come really close. Especially the big silver bull Eli, he likes to eat a carrot, or two, if you want to try feeding him!
Every day at 17.00 we show our moose, and there is always someone coming. Sometimes you have to wait a long time, and be patient. Just like in the wild.
For about 1 hour, the moose stay around and eat, and then give you the opportunity see them up close, while you get to hear the story about Räntemåla, the moose and their lives.
What do you want to know? We love getting questions from our visitors!
