Then he tried to look into someone’s bedroom. I guess he’s a peeping moose.
He saw me in the window and came forward, seeming to be either stunned, traumatized or curious. I am no expert on moose behavior, but he seems young to be on his own. I was thinking he may have just lost his mother and was upset. Today I saw him laying down by himself next door, so she is gone.
He came over to say hello and then began eating snow.
When he ate his fill of snow he went right to the door of the entryway to my apartment as if he wanted me to come out or he wanted to come in. I was standing at my door to take the pictures.
I hope he finds enough to eat, the population of moose in this area is down and some are starving because there is not enough winter browsing material for them. One wonderful thing about Alaska is the opportunity to see wildlife, but watching hungry moose is sad. We can’t feed them, even the young ones because they can’t become acclimated to humans, it’s dangerous for them and for people. Today the Board of Game met to discuss the problem, I hope they find a solution soon.
