I can honestly say I've only witnessed a live moose in the wild once in my life. It was just outside of Remer, MN on our way back from Walker. He was standing in the ditch near the road lazily chewing his cud not really caring that we had stopped to gawk at him. I guess we were gawking because you just don't see that animal out in their natural habitat very often.
There has been a 50 percent decline in the Minnesota moose population since 2010. Moose in Minnesota are in trouble and, believe it or not, could disappear. If your going to the Great Minnesota Get Together, make sure to look for Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Running into a full-grown moose in real life would be terrifying at worst, disconcerting at best. Running into a tiny baby moose, on the other hand, would be adorable. Who knew? Now you know. Enjoy these pictures of little moose calves.
