Abstract

Whole weights of 89 moose (Alces alces americana) captured live in winter or road-killed in summer in Algonquin Park, Ontario are presented. Average weight was 410 kg (904 lb) and weights ranged from 160-542 kg. Mean weight of adult females was 435 kg and that of adult males 543 kg. Whole weights of moose from Algonquin Park are similar to moose from western North America. Linear regressions of whole weight versus total length and hind foot length showed poor correlation.
