Awesome! I hope they stop poaching them. It makes me sad (:<)

Cute, but you need not worry about it because that is why I waited a few years before posting it. The moose is long gone from that area. Yes albinos are a target for hunters. No problem. Take care. Doreen

Hi Doreen, I'm Larry. I just moved the coordinants of your spotting over to the ocean for the protection of this animal. I have also added some information to the notes of this spotting. I started editing the Rare Color Morphs mission and when I started doing research about the albino moose all I could find were a bunch of articles about how hunters had killed one in early October. It is for that reason that I have changed the spotting location. I hope you can understand. Happy spotting, Larry

That's good thinking, I wish odd colored animals were protected against hunting they have an unfair disadvantage sticking out and some poor eyesight so hunters easily get close.

It was a wonderful animal to see. Albinos do stick out in the wild and I always worry about hunters so I posted this way after seeing it. Doreen
