Moose Magic!

Baby Moose Cuddle Time!

Baby Moose Cuddle Time!

Got this in my email today from friend Pam.  This is clearly making the rounds.  Pam alone forwarded it to 55 people and the person who forwarded it to her included 11 others on her distribution list.  The text is pretty non-specific, but it gets the story across.  Here’s what it said:

A baby moose was in distress in a creek. A man got him out of the creek; tried to find the mother & send him on his way, but eventually the moose stumbled back into the creek & was rescued again. The baby moose followed the man home.

The man has only a small cabin so he took the moose to another neighbor, who took these photos. They took the moose the next day to a woman who looks after wild animals & she put it in a pen with a rescued fawn.

It doesn’t mention there are a couple of dogs around who seem cool with the whole situation as well.  The pictures are adorable…and plentiful.  I won’t include them all here, but here are the best ones.  Go ahead, make that silly face that says your heart is melting for these critters.  Mine did!

I don’t know what it is with the baby moose stories these days.  Just a few weeks ago, I was led to this adorable video in an email blast from GodTube (the Christian equivalent of YouTube). I can’t find it over there now, but here it is on YouTube.  Twin baby moose and their mommy, all frolicking in someone’s back yard sprinkler:
By the way, in case you were wondering, a scientist at the Forest Preserve District of Cook County (Illinois) tells us that “The word “moose” came to us from Algonquian Indians. Consequently its plural, instead of being “mooses” or “meese”, is the same as the singular. That is true of most Indian names whether of a tribe, such as the Winnebago and Potawatomi, or of an object such as papoose. It isalso true of many wildlife names not of Indian origin — for example: deer, mink and grouse.” There, now that’s settled.
What…you want more about moose?  Come on!  Go look it up yourselves!  It’s 11:00 p.m. here, guys!  I have to go to bed.  Anyway, thanks for checking in!
Genesis 7:15 And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.

  1. Heh… I almost smoked a moose on Monday night! I was out of town, doing some camping, and it was about 8:30 PM – getting dark and very, very foggy. I was driving down the country road to the campground, and I saw what I thought was a man, dressed all in black, running parallel to the road. I was like, ‘What is that guy doing out here??’ Then I got a split second closer and it ran across the road in front of me and it was a huge bull moose. He ran into the woods, and that’s that.

  2. Anyone know who the guy is in the pictures?

  3. I can totally see why this is your top post! What a sweet story and adorable baby! =)
