Idaho Fish and Game has been informed recently by the public and staff from the Southeast Region of an albino (white) cow moose with a dark-colored calf. Fish and Game Director Steve Huffaker signed a closure order to protect the moose.

The albino has been seen on private land in Game Management Unit 76, where a season on moose opens October 15. Huffaker's order, which closed ONLY the season on white moose in the Southeast Region, was effective on October 11. The order termed the white moose a "unique and rare animal...worthy of protection to allow study and public viewing."
