This is the moose calf that I found lying by our pond on Monday. The one that was born so weak and small. The mom was out in the field and doesn't seem to see him. He went crying up the Mr. Crane asking if he would feed him but Mr. Crane put out his wings to look bigger and jumped up and down in the air to scare him off not wanting to help out at all.
This is the mom in our yard pushing around my wooden crane. This is what happened to her calf. We tried to drive him toward the mom, she could see him in the yard but made no attempt to come get him or even searched for him. He went down in the grass in my neighbor's yard so we left him alone. The next morning Bob went to see if he was there and he was gone. Our neighbor said she saw him walk off across our subdivision road away from his mom. Bad news is bears come into that area. So that was the last I saw of him. His mom is still around this area I just saw her again on Wed.
