A Cute Moose Story

When this little guy was young, he lost his mother too soon. So the Fish and Game brought him to Wendall and Debbie. They asked them to raise him to a safe age and then turn him loose again.

So they bottle fed and took care of him; after a while they fed him with their cows. So last Spring he was a year old ... and it was time to turn him back into the wild. Opened the gate and off he went. Stayed gone all summer; then this fall he was back with the cows. He really thinks he is a cow for now, and we were all happy to see him, as he is pretty friendly. He loves honey buns and will eat them right out of your mouth.

Wendall and Debbie live right up in the mountains so it came time to bring the cows down. Well the moose was lonely all by himself so he headed down to find another heard of cows to hang with. The neighbors called about a week later and asked Wendall to please come and get his Moose. So he headed out with a honey bun, bucket of grain and the horse trailer and brought him back home.
The moose is free to go anytime he wants but is choosing to stay put for now. Surely, come spring he will start to feel a bit like a male Moose and take off. But for now he is happy. "

Thanks Win S.
