A Most Canadian Disaster

As part of the celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary, the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) Botanical Garden planted their Canada 150 Celebration Tulip Garden. The bulbs were planted last fall to bloom this spring, and included white tulips, red tulips, and the special Canada 150 tulip, developed to resemble the flag of Canada. As the tulips were about to bloom, a moose came through and ate them.

The moose munched on the entire red and white tulip display - Canada's 150th maple leaf design and all! Our garden staff survey the damage and will begin to clear the leftovers. While the moose completely ruined the display, how bloomin' Canadian is that, than to have moose 'garden experience'?!

The display won't be what they had planned, but considering how much he ate, the moose must have loved his dinner. -via Atlas Obscura
