Moose

Alces alces

Description:

First moose calves we have seen this spring. They all calve in the first 2 or 3 weeks of June. Predation from bears and wolves take lots of the calves in the first few days after they are born. If they make it a week or so they are pretty untouchable by predators.

Habitat:

Pretty much everywhere in Alaska and Canada.

Notes:

The cows are extremely defensive of their young. In Anchorage we have had 4 people in the last week hospitalized due to moose. Anchorage has many moose and as long as you give them space and pay attention to the signals they leave you alone. But, when they have calves you have to give them a wide birth and pay attention.
