Wear an anti-musk mask to avoid being overcome by the pungent odor from the beastly migrating oxen.
Fargo, ND – While North Dakota is still dealing with the Covid crisis, it will soon also have to contend with a Bovid crisis.
Thousands of musk ox from the Bovid family of large hoofed mammals will soon be doing their annual migration.
Because of climate change, this year’s route is going to bring an extremely large group of the strong musk-smelling animals through the Fargo area.
Authorities are recommending that the public wear masks when outside due to the powerful musky odor emitted by the males who are trying to attract females.
Because some of the animals weigh almost 900 pounds, people are also asked to quarantine during the times that the musk ox migration is moving through our region.
In summary, because of the Bovid migration, either shelter in place (in small groups) to stay safe, or if you must go out for beer, wear a mask to maximize your herd immunity to the strong musky smell and minimize your chances of being overcome by the intense Bovidian odor.
The goose population is arguing amongst themselves as to which direction to fly.
Goose Village, Nebraska – Wildlife biologists are noticing confusion amongst the migrating goose population.
Professional bird watchers are observing that migrating geese seem “very confused” as to which direction to fly for their annual migration to Spring break.
Biologist Sue Coons-Fodge says: “We believe that the combination of Global Warming and Global Cooling is creating a major bombogenesis which is causing some serious disorientation for these poor little geese.”
Sue goes on: “Hopefully they’ll get it all figured out in time to travel North, where they can party, and have sex, in order to hatch more future confusion.”
Predictably, all the letters in Sue Coons-Fodge can migrate into: Confused Goose!
