Info from Licensor: "My husband Leonard and I came home after being away four hours. I looked out the kitchen window and saw a yearling moose lying prostrate on a snowbank. The snow was at least three feet deep. The yearling was exhausted, likely from trying to get out of the deep snow. The two men decided the yearling moose was not injured or sick, so they took shovels and after 30 minutes, had the young moose shoveled out enough that he was able to get his legs under his body and hoist himself up. The young moose collapsed shortly after he walked away. We called Wildlife authorities and they said he was likely exhausted and he'd probably be back on his feet. An hour later the young moose got up and trotted up the road. He seemed perfectly fine."
