    Moose is going to tell all his friends about the great fun ride on ice he had.

    That was nice. It looked like the mooselet hyperextended the rear legs though. The right rear looked injured.

    The mooseling (?) is described as being exhausted, but not injured. Furthermore, a lonely m,oose cow had been prowling the woods in the vicinity, probably trying to find the kid. the rescuers "chased" the calf in the general direction of its mom, so hopefully, they rejoined.

    Touching.

    They saved another moose so that it can be shot in 2015.

    Moose DOES taste very good, particularly with lingon-berries..

    What always has bothered me about the video was that young Mooselet was a long way from shore, a really long way. How did it make it way out there in the first place ?

    Fair enough, but why would the mother leave baby Moose in a lurch on the ice then ? I do remember that I read that the mother was nearby the shore when the baby was rescued.

    A picture comes to mind of the Tsunami disaster in Japan where a dog wouldn't leave it's owner trapped under debris for days and days.
