I've heard of Cats having Nine Lives, but a Moose having Eleven... No WAIT! Bullwinkle! He musta had a Gazillion!

As an old guy who started school in the 1950's, we would have phrase it this way:

During its lifetime, an individual Wolf has been known to kill as many as eleven Moose.

(As an "aside", have you noticed that few folks, even the Channel 11 Newsies, say "Ahleven" not eleven?) "See you tonight ant ahleven on ahleven".

Anyway... ya cheered my Day! Thanks, one and all!! :o)
