Canada and Norway's battle over the tallest moose sculpture

There’s a battle going on between Canada and Norway as to who can build the largest moose sculpture. Norwegian artist Linda Bakke has managed to pip Canada to the post. Her stainless steel moose stands on a highway between Oslo and Trondheim and is almost 33 feet tall. This makes it almost a foot taller than Canada’s MacMoose, which stands in the appropriately named town of Moose Jaw and Canadians aren’t happy at all. Norway's addition is also much shinier with a bigger rack of antlers.
