This is an older picture of an albino moose.
This moose was spotted somewhere in the upper North East between Canada and the United States. You may contact the Project Noah for general coordinates with proper scientific credentials. Thank you. Ranger LarryGraziano

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
