Baby moose 12 hours old - Born in the middle of downtown Naubinway, Mi.

In my 33 years in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I have never seen a new
born baby moose. This one was not even a half a mile from our house. The
mother picked a small quiet neighbor and had her baby in the front yard
just off of US 2, at 5:30 am. Allen and I were out bike riding when we
came upon the pair. The lady across the street from this house told us
she saw it being born. We saw them at 5:30 PM. So the little one was 12
hours old; what an awesome place we live in to see such a site.
