Starting in May the moose begin what is referred to as calving season and we get the delight of seeing little mini-moose running behind their mamas. While this is an adorable picture there is also a bit of caution that needs to come with it. If you come to visit Alaska or live near moose habitat then you need to be aware of the mamas. They are fiercely protective, they have been know to maul anything that gets close to their babies. So while it is a delightful experience to get to see a little mini-moose running around, please give them and their mamas space.
