Well, if MNR is your game people I'm not surprised. They are no more responsive down here,

Yea it seems they want so much done but they dont respond or come when called and they have little to no money to do what they are supposed too, let alone come and save a calf. The calf ended up dying anyway two broken back legs and the mother was never seen, I guess she knew like they always do.

Only the strong survive the boreal. sad

This seemed like a post with a photo so I thougt I'd add one from Saturday. Are all moose this dumb? They seem to be thicker than all get out in one place I walk, poopin all over and standing around eating mud. If I'd a had a rope I'd of roped her and made a horse out of her.

If that Cow had a calf with her, YOU were in great danger. A cow moose, unlike most bulls, gives no warning.

Moose may not be very bright by our standards but they will stomp you into a mud hole of their "moose logic" tells them to.

I believe it was the fatal attack at a university in Alaska The mans was
Myong Chin Ra, age 71.
Google his name for a article or two.
One, almost sure fired way to get attacked by a cow moose is if there a bear close enough that the cow can smell it, but can only see your movement, and you are between the cow and calf. Remember a moose has very poor eyesight, legally blind by our standards eye roll

Yep they can turn quick if they have a little one around. On the other hand I've been that close a few times and its amazing to take pics from that distance and a lifetime memory you won't forget. Great pics thanks for sharing.
