If you look close you can see the ears of the calf just behind it’s mom. This cow and calf ran by us at full speed early one morning last week. We never could see what it was running from, but it is safe to say, this is a really tough area for newborn moose. Not only are there predators everywhere, but the vegetation is so tall and thick, this one had a difficult time just keeping up with its mother.
In the photo below is a cow with 3 calves which is some what rare. She has taken a little different approach hanging out near the campgrounds at the front of the park where the predators are more uncomfortable, and the traveling is much easier!
