Thanks guys for helping them. My favourite animal is the moose. I am from NZ & worked & have visited Canada many times. I have been very lucky to have spotted only a small handful of moose in the wild when working for an outfitter in the rockies.PS not hunting outfitter & horse trek one.

I hope the pair was able to find their mom. They don't look old enough to survive on their own.

Good story. I just hope the little moose doesn't think all humans are good and learns to fear them.

That moose will always be "his" moose.

I wonder if the babies were reunited with their mother. I am worried that although they were rescued, they still could starve. Hopefully they did not drift too far from their mother.

Hunting only to eat, otherwise with a camera, is a great way to respect and sustainably enjoy wildlife. A hi resolution digital image of a moose or bear turned into a life size image makes a much better trophy than a dead animal head!

Lovely story. I confess I would have felt sad leaving the sad little moose on shore but certainly it was what had to happen. What a beautiful experience for the people though to have been able to help the two moose and spend that bit of time with them.

The baby Moose was trying to say thank you in its own way.
