This newborn moose calf is on the wrong side of the fence from its mother. She gave birth in a safe place, but unfortunately it was in a pasture with sheep, which has woven wire. She jumped the fence, but the calf could not follow her. I called a wildlife officer that I know, hopefully he helped the family out.

What a story, Eve..I hope mom and baby are both doing well. Great that you were out there with your camera. (Julie)

Thanks for your compliment..I have not been able to take pics this year due to both hips being bad. I just had the first replaced, with the 2nd by the end of the summer. I think I was a German Shepard in my former life. Seems I was born with hip displacia (sp) back dancing on the tables in no time. : )

Best of luck to you, Julie! I hope the surgery helps. It must be very painful, but I know it is usually very successful. My Mom's husband had 2 knees and a hip replaced, and won (in the Master's Class) a 30k cross country ski race 7 months after his last surgery.

My doggie (a 7 year old lab/malamute X) has pretty bad hip dysplasia, but I don't think an operation is feasible for him :(

Thanks, Eve...I feel for your dog. My issue came on pretty rapidly and totally by surprise. Didn't think I was old enough for such problems, but when you are born w/it, age isn't a factor.
