A Moose named Malcom
My in-laws recently sold their cabin. We have many wonderful family memories from the cabin including, of course, wildlife. The canyon that held the cabin was full of Shiras Moose. One of North America’s great ungulates, Shiras Moose are the smallest of all Moose species. As you will see in the photo, there is nothing small about these creatures
This giant bull was nicknamed, Malcom. We enjoyed watching this old boy most of the summer and into the fall.
My wife is watching Malcom from the front porch. What a beautiful photo of a moose in velvet.
Forgive the fuzzy photo. But this cow and calf could often be seen in the same area as Malcom. We like to think this calf was sired by ol’ Malcom.
