Mama and baby moose update

12 06 2009

CIMG5780Mama moose and her baby were back in our yard yesterday and today.  Baby moose was tasting my flowers but thankfully didn’t think they were delicious.  Mama moose was helping me by eating some shoots off the front tree that I trim back every year anyway.  They are both pretty hungry- most every time I see them they’re eating.  The baby is pretty feisty, he/she likes to run away from the mom.  Mama seems pretty calm about that.  I wouldn’t be so calm knowing there might be hungry bears nearby.  Being around people probably gives her a sense of security. 

We got a few more pictures of them I wanted to share.  Notice how big the mama is next to our car!
