Many believe a cow moose with a calf is one of the dangerous animals in my neck of the woods. I got out of the truck to get some close up pictures and walked within 50 meters of her. She got between me and the calf and put her ears back. I knew it was time for me to leave so I turn towards the truck. She started towards me as I scrambled up the bank and to the truck. My wife got scared and closed the door of the truck. Didn't take me long to reopen it and get inside. I asked my wife was she trying to collect insurance money when she closed the door?lol Ya I survived another one.
The calf was nice shape but the cow seemed very week. I believe she was old or was sick because she did not look very good. Local people said they seen the calf a few weeks later but did not see the mother. Most of the guys believe nature took it course and the cow died but left a legacy of a beautiful bouncing baby calf.
