Moosely mothering

The hunters are about in the forest and my dog is shaking because of the gunshots.

A mother moose with her two young sought refuge nearby, she led them through the village to a small park right in the centre. She will no doubt hide there in safety while the guns are going off, and all the hunters have gone home. They might look a bit stupid but they have good instincts.

It is uncanny in that every year when hunting seasons opens the moose go into hiding. Usually we see moose just about everywhere and we have to be very careful driving in case we hit one, as 1500lbs coming through your windshield is undesirable. However right now it will be extremely rare to see a moose until the hunters are gone.
