Baby Moose Moves In
This is from Sandy who lives just outside Nelson, BC.
This reads like something out of Readers' Digest, but recently a neighbour went for a walk up Falls Creek (near Nelson BC), found a baby moose in some distress in the creek. He got him out of the creek, tried to send him on his way, tried to find the mother. Eventually the baby moose stumbled back into the creek, was rescued again, and followed Jonathon home. Jonathon lives in a very small cabin, so he took the moose to another neighbour (Andrea), who took these photos.
I have never even seen moose in this area, so am bewildered that a recently born moose would be on its own, way up a mountainous creek. They took the moose the next day to Helen Jamieson in Blewett, who looks after wild animals.
She put it in a pen with a fawn. Apparently the moose calf/deer fawn combo is excruciatingly cute.
For you international types, Blewett is an area just outside Nelson. Lots of up-scale homes there in a gorgeous mountain setting.
