What up MOOSE?
We recently went to the Anchorage Zoo where they had two moose that had found themselves walking on the road like this dude and WHAM car collision. Thankfully they were not killed, and after being rehabilitated found cushy lives at the zoo. One of the moose there might have been rescued after being found abandoned by its mother, but it's all a little hazy. All I know is that the two moose living at the zoo (and 90% of the other animals there including a 40lb baby polar bear OMGSOCUTEWANTONERIGHTNOW) had been rescued in some capacity or another and it made me warm and fuzzy inside.
This sight made me warm and fuzzy inside to know both brown bears were rescued as cubs, but also terrified to look at those CLAWS and those TEETH and know that this weekend if we do indeed head out on a backpacking trip with friends that the bear spray we're wearing and the gun Adam will be carrying will be there because we're worried we might see these guys.
I mean, it was cute to watch them playing, and the animal lover in me really appreciated that they had been rescued as cubs and all, but I really would like to have all my bear sightings from now until eternity happen while I am standing safely behind zoo fences thankyouverymuch.
