    Baby moose rests at Gander SPCA, rides in RCMP unit, books rooms in nature park

    Meanwhile, in central Newfoundland.....

    Lost baby moose gets ride in RCMP cruiser. (cbc.ca)
    The Gander SPCA has had many unusual guests over the years — crows, hawks, and even a fox.

    But the latest guest may be the most unusual — a very young moose.

    She doesn't have a name, but they're thinking about calling her Apple because she was found just east of Appleton.

    Bonnie Harris, the manager of the Gander SPCA, just happened to be on the Trans-Canada Highway when she saw a crowd gathered.

    “The moose was crying out for its mom, but no sign of her,” Harris said.
    ---
    The moose is only about three or four weeks old, and was pretty stressed when she was put in the back of an RCMP cruiser.

    But she later calmed down, after four litres of milk.
    ---
    Soon the moose will be moved again — this time to the Salmonier Nature Park.

    I want a baby moose, I want a baby moose!

    Just kidding, but the moose is adorable.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    I agree. She needs a better name than "Apple" though. She's cuter than any ol' apple!

    Apple conjures Eve.

    Perhaps Calypso?

    Isn't there a collie named that? (Insider humor from a now-closed thread.)

    So some say. Personally, I think Darraby is a cuter name.

    meanwhile, in Adult Mooseland....

    Maritime moose 'sex project' gets important land donation. (ctvnews.ca)
    The Nature Conservancy of Canada has received 316 hectares of private land from a former top diplomat to promote cross-border moose love along the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick boundary.

    The land conservation organization has been attempting to assemble a corridor of land on the Chignecto Isthmus between the two provinces as part of its so-called Moose Sex Project.

    Derek Burney, former Canadian ambassador to the United States and chief of staff to Brian Mulroney when he was prime minister, said when he heard of the project he was amused and inspired.

    "When you conjure it up, you can only smile at the imagery," he said, chuckling.
