There is more information available on this subject at Moose on the English-language Wikipedia.

Moose (Alces alces) is the North American name for the largest extant species in the deer family. The same animal is called the Elk in Europe. The name moose is derived from the Algonquian Eastern Abnaki name moz, meaning "he trims, shaves". Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a "twig-like" configuration. The name Elk is applied, in North America, to the second largest deer species—an animal also called the Elk.

Though native to Earth, moose were also apparently transferred onto Reach, along with their dominant predator, wolves.[1]
