Joey Ouellette spotted a young moose sitting and not moving on his property in Van Buren on Sunday, March 17 and decided to investigate. Ouellette walked up the steep snow and ice covered Lake Road that heads to Long Lake to check on the moose calf that he thought might be injured or sick.
“Moose typically go the other way,” Ouellette said but as he got closer the moose calf stood up, put its ears back and let out a growl.
Ouellette began running down the hill and managed to take refuge in a nearby snowbank until the moose passed by.
The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife recommends the public keep a safe distance from moose and other wildlife to avoid injury or upsetting animals.
