DENVER — Usually, we expect puppies and kittens to dominate the Internet, but how about the king of the deer family- the mighty moose?

"I can't speak for everybody, but, when I see how graceful and peaceful they are, [I] just lose it," she told me, virtually. "You just stare and stare... and admire them."

Phillips posts pictures and videos of moose every day, which get sent into her with the hashtag #MooseFoto.
