A bold young moose

This calf and his mother were in the Bragg Creek Provincial Park, grazing on the edge of the forest near the road.  With momma close by, the calf was bolder than I expected.  He stared at me from a few paces in the trees before crossing the road and walking very close to my car.

Once he had checked me out, then he skipped back again and joined in snacking on the greenery.

  2. Is it surprising that the mom didn’t call it back?

    • Hi Lyle – it definitely was a surprise to me. But he was a big two year old so I think he was trying on his “bullness”.
