Orphaned Moose May 30th, 2015

The State sent us this orphaned moose calf yesterday ..... she has a lower leg challenge thus the temporary splint and pictured here with the ever vigilant Rocky Seward, who is one of her round the clock "nurses".
Veterinarian Vic Walker's wife Sue, accompanied the moose calf on Alaska Airlines yesterday from Anchorage, and have to tip my hat to her for that benevolent gesture.. so, it's a moose named "Sue" from here on.
Scant information on its plight, or its mother, but apparently she made the fateful decision to cross the raging Matanuska River and the calf was left behind on the other side to become grizzly fodder. Some hikers eventually came upon her to intervene ..
