When we moved into the igloo, we had 29 musk oxen neighbors around the block chillin (freezing) in the fields at the University Research Center … now there are 13. According to The News Miner article, the inexplicable musk ox die off has “researchers scratching their heads.”
Are these gentle giants the canaries of our time?
And if so, or even if not, please may I put in for a relocation to somewhere the radio DJ never, ever says, “If you can just hold on until the weekend, it’s going to warm up to almost zero!”
Is this for real?
