Hungry Hungry Hipp… Moose!

He’s hungry – drinking 4pints of milk replacer in 1 minute and 37seconds. This happens 5 times a day!

On May 24, 2021, the Yukon Wildlife Preserve received a baby male moose from Conservation Officer Services. The Preserve’s Veterinarian, Dr. Maria Hallock, reports the young moose is very small – likely only a couple of days old – but appears to be healthy and is eating well.

 

After finding the young moose on May 24th, a member of the public ended up taking the moose back to their home. They called the Preserve, which referred their call to CO Services. CO Services collected the moose and brought it to the Preserve on the evening of May 24th. Read the full Press Release.

It’s always preferable for a moose like this to have the opportunity to grow up with its mom in the wild,” says Paleczny. “But our team is working hard to provide the best life we can for this little moose.”. . .
