SOMERVILLE, Maine — Meet the woman behind the moose poop artwork of Tirdy Works.

Mary Winchenbach created the small business, which uses locally sourced materials, from her home.

“We just go out and track the moose and wherever the moose are, they're going to take a crap,” she said. “And I have found when a moose takes a dump, you walk about 50 yards in any direction, and they take another dump."

She said the business is fairly simple and efficient.

"When a moose takes a dump, they'll crap out between 200 and 400 turds every time they take a crap so it's like I get five bucks a turd for these things, so I get jumping up and down, and I get excited when I see a turd."
