UNDATED (CNN) -- True love is hard to find, and sometimes, our affections can be very misplaced. That idea doesn't just apply to people.
Northern Colorado can be a lonely place for a moose. No surprise that a young moose would be curious about a bronze statue that looks like a moose.
Bob Balink's neighbors placed the statue on their property in grand lake, then left town. Ever since, an amorous bull moose has been courting the statue. And by courting, we mean the full court press that we can't quite show. Balink says, "He's in love. He's nuzzling and he kisses and he licks him and he walks around and he gets on top of him."
Who knew a statue bought for a couple of thousand dollars, 60 percent off at a going out of business sale would be so irresistible. The owners of the statue are thinking of anchoring it down. They're worried the real moose will get carried away and knock it over. After all the actual moose is probably twice the statue's weight.
No privacy, unrequited love. It's enough to make a moose say "bull!" Maybe a little Barry White would help. Statue or not, can't get enough of your love babe.
