GRAND LAKE, Colo. (NBC/KUSA) - Talk about unrequited love. A curious young bull moose appears to have fallen hard.
"That's a bull moose standing right there at the cabin across the street," said neighbor Bob Balink. "He's the one that comes by every morning."
Recently, a stranger has been roaming the Grand Lake, Colo., neighborhood.
"He's not too shy about it, apparently," said Balink.
Shy, he is not.
"There's two things he wants to do, and one of them is eat," said Balink.
To understand what the other thing is, you have to see the moose statue – installed in front of Balink's home less than a week ago.
And it's not just the neighbors who have taken notice.
"The strange thing is he's trying to mate with a statue," said Balink. "They're both male."
The moose and the statue have become Grand Lake's latest tourist attraction.
"He's in love. He's nuzzling, and he kisses and he walks around, and he … gets on top of him," said a passerby.
But falling in love with a statue is a tricky. The moose flirts and then decides to walk away.
"And that one doesn't move and that one does," said Balink, referring to the statue and the live moose.
Still, let it be known that the moose is loose. After all, who are we to tell him how -- and who -- to love?
"I say what happens in Grand Lake, stays in Grand Lake," chuckled a passerby.
