LUCKY ME!!! Mom and her Newborn!!!!
Last June, I was visiting my uncle and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and as I walked around the corner of his house I encountered a mama moose chomping away as I crouched down against the house less than 10 feet away from her.
Somehow I knew she was hungrier for foliage than she was interested in me.... a crazy assumption I know.... but I pulled out my phone and started to videotape her for probably a minute or two until a bird scared her off.
I was so excited and ran upstairs to tell my uncle and had forgotten my phone downstairs so I ran back down and caught mama with her baby I swear she was bringing it out to show me!!! I realize that they don't do that.... but I have no other explanation!
I quickly captured a very short video of the two of them and took a few snaps with my camera as well.
I could see that the baby was a newborn because it was still wet. I had two moose encounters within a 15 minute period, and I am so blessed to be here to report that all is well in Coeur d'Alene Idaho!!
