When hired to dispell the legend of the Fiordland Moose, Robin Slade follows Jerry Reed into a series of encounters with followers of “The Moose” and discovers that the moose may truly be within all of us.

Play the Mooseheart game! Spot all the elements from five years of the 48hours competition in New Zealand.

Mooseheart : A Wild Moose Chase

The following is based on a true story.

The names of those involved have been changed to protect their identities.

Recent evidence has come to light supporting the idea that moose still inhabit areas of Fiordland, New Zealand.

Jerry Reed may be one of the last living persons to have sighted one of these moose live. Failing health as a result of industrial misadventure has left him unable to return to prove his story.

Until now…
