Panicked moose calf searches for mom
Our moose calf usually walks on her mother's heels - so close that it looks like she could accidentally get hit by a hoof. Then, one day in early August, the calf was wandering a bit, not sticking to her mom like glue. I don't know exactly how it happened by the calf lost track of her mother. Here she was as she started to search.
Pretty soon, slow-paced searching gave away to panic. The calf sprinted back and forth while emitting high pitched sounds.
Check out the video of this pair. No worries - it ends well.
