Well meet Maine's newest arrival, at least to the Moose Population here. For some reason this moose decided to have her baby right on the front lawn of a house in Windam, Maine. Its pretty much in Surburbia so it was rather a surprise for the homeowner and the next door neighbor that took the following photos. The same can be said for the timing of this baby. This is not the typical time for baby Moose to be born. Obviously this little one is going to have a rough time as we head into winter. As I type this, we have had 4 days of frost so far, so yeah it's getting cold and will get even colder for a infant moose.
These photos were taken 12 hours after the moose was born. Its just hard to believe such a cutie will grow up and look as ugly as her mother!!
