Actually, yes. And they have been known to wander down into town. When that happens the Fish & Game people are usually called, the moose is tranked and relocated. A calf moose got stuck in a basement window late last Fall, in fact; F&G had a devil of a time working that one out!
There are also cougar, black bear, whitetail deer, mule deer, and lots and lots of horses and cattle.
Out here, cattle are sometimes called "slow elk" by some who consider themselves hunters. This is usually done in a courtroom just before sentencing, and thirty days plus probation plus a fine plus reparations plus loss of hunting privileges plus loss of everything involved with the "hunt" is still preferable to how the ranchers USED to deal with thos who hunted "slow elk." Something about a tree and a lariat, if I remember correctly.
