A man and his moose

A few years ago my dad found a young female moose in the woods.. he thought she had lost her mama most likely to a hunter so she was pretty vulnerable and alone.

So my dad, befriended her. He spent over a year in the woods with her, and over time she got to the point where she would allow him to pet her, and they even laid down in the snow together on occasion.. playing with apples they'd role back and forth.

Eventually she grew up... and she took off in the woods, most likely to mate. He still has hours of video of her though, and it truly is amazing.
