There is some common name issue going on. What is called an elk in some places is called a moose in others. This happens with other animals as well. It is just the first time that I have run into it. I am going to add a species identification suggestion because that is the easiest format to get exactly what I mean across.

Thanks Sarah! It could totally be, I'm no expert, if you're confident I'll change it.

Hi Javier! These are some lovely photos. I will admit to living nowhere near Alberta, but this spotting just seems to be more in the caribou/elk family to me.
Anyway, welcome to Project Noah and good luck!
