Story of a baby moose

September 19, 2008 at 07:38 AM

OK. So if there were moose in central Illinois, this story would definitely happen to my buddy Flathead. I can even see him building the rickety pin that you’ll see in pictures below. Fortunately for the Flathead clan, there are no moose around.

Anyway, as this story goes, a baby moose was in distress in a creek somewhere and this kindly fellow rescued the critter. He tried to find the mother, but failed. Eventually the moose followed the man home. The moose came in the house. But this could not last for long. So they took the moose to wildlife rehabilitator, who put the moose with a fawn in a pen.

Is this true? Who knows. But the pictures are pretty cool.
