Takla Landing was celebrating their 1st Annual Spring Cultural Days by putting on a hunting camp for students of Nuswadeezulh, Takla’s Community School.
As the group of hunters set out for the day, they came across a cow moose with two babies on the shore. The cow took one of the babies and ran off into the bush, leaving the weaker one laying by the shore crying.
The party waited near the calf to see if mom would return for her other calf. When it became clear that the mother wasn’t going to return the party took the calf back to camp.
The RCMP would like to remind everyone that if you happen upon wildlife and it “appears” to be abandoned do not immediately interfere. Mom could be close by and the baby may not actually be abandoned.
