Maine woman turns moose poop into crafts, clocks and mobiles

It could be the number one story about number two we've seen this year.

A Maine woman has crafted herself a unique business, which could lead to the best (or worst) white elephant gifts this year.

Mary Winchenbach ​​​​​​was recently profiled by WABI, the CBS station in Bangor, Maine, for her business, Tirdy Works.

Winchenbach takes moose droppings and turns them into household items, such as "poo-poo clocks," wind mobiles with "fecal people" and ornaments, among other things.

"The turds are all local," she said to WABI. "We just go out and track the moose and wherever the moose are there going to take a crap and I have found that when a moose takes a dump you walk about 50 yards in any direction and they take another dump."

Watch the story below.
