    Moose Arrival


    In the early morning of May 20th we received notice of two orphaned moose calves in Prince George. We had just recently formed an alliance with Roy Rea from UNBC to create moose rescue teams. The problem with orphaned moose calves is that they are either highly mobile (outrunning us humans with great ease) or hunkered down somewhere (basically making themselves invisible). It takes manpower and patience to capture these youngsters.
    By mid afternoon we got word that Roy was now in possession of both calves. After a short stop at Ospica Veterinarian Service (to check them over and administrate some fluids) the calves traveled to Smithers where they arrived in the evening.
    Brother and Sister seem to be in fairly good shape and started drinking their special formula right away. However moose are fragile and very susceptible to infections so these two youngsters are not out of the woods yet.
