REGINA -- The province’s favourite moose, Mac, is set to reclaim his title at the world’s tallest moose when his new rack is unveiled on Thursday.
Mac lost his claim to fame to a town in Norway in 2015. That town’s moose, Storelgen, was 30 centimetres taller than Mac.
Earlier this year, Moose Jaw vowed to regain the title. After a Moosarandum of Understanding was reached at a Moose Truce in March, it was decided that Mac could be the largest moose, and Storelgen would be the shiniest and most attractive moose in the world.
Mac’s new rack, which will add the 31 centimetres needed to make him the world’s tallest once again, will be officially unveiled on Thursday.
The international moose feud brought the public eye to Moose Jaw’s main roadside attraction this year.
But, drivers in Saskatchewan know Mac isn’t the only thing worth stopping for when travelling through the province.
CTV News Regina went looking for other larger-than-life attractions you can see in small town Saskatchewan.
