英文新聞
For thirty years, Mac the Moose from the city of Moose Jaw in Canada was the world’s largest moose statue. Mac is 10 meters tall, but in 2015 Norway made Storelgen (“Big Elk”), who is 30 centimeters taller. Now, Moose Jaw plans to add 31 centimeters to Mac to make it the tallest again. They even have a GoFundMe page. But the city of Stor-Elvdal says they would make Storelgen bigger to keep competing with Moose Jaw.

中文翻譯
長達30 年期間,位在加拿大糜鹿顎市(Moose Jaw)的「麥克糜鹿」是世界上最大的糜鹿雕像,高10 公尺。但在2015 年,挪威建造「大糜鹿」雕像,比麥克糜鹿高30 公分。現在糜鹿顎市打算把麥克加高31 公分,企圖拿回「世界第一高」的頭銜,為此還開設「贊助我」募款專頁。對此,大糜鹿所在的大埃夫爾達爾市則說會讓大糜鹿加大,跟加拿大糜鹿顎市一拚高下。
