    Researchers in Norway claim a grown moose can produce 2,100 kilos of methane a year, equivalent to the amount of CO2 caused by an 8,077-mile car trip, der Spiegel reported.
    NorwayÂ’s national animal releases methane through burping and flatulence, as do cows, considered more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide.
    There are estimated to be more than 100,000 moose in Norway.

    Somehow I believe it...try sleeping in a room with two gassy Great Danes. I don't know what the environmental effects are, but it sure gets me out of the room pronto.

    I would think that every living creature farts - except me of course. I'm too sophisticated for something like that.

    Absolutely its true. Cows methane gas is the same way and we mass produce them. Its the reason why when Al Gore started talking about global warming issues why he was questioned if he was a vegetarian as being a vegetarian saves an average of 100 animals a year and helps save the enviroment from global warming. http://www.globalgreen.org/ is a good website for information on it.
