If your house is located close to the woods, then you will always have fresh air, beautiful scenery and a great place to go for a job. On the downside of things, you might have unwanted visitors knocking at your door in the middle of the night. This is exactly what happened to a family from Canada when two moose siblings appeared in their backyard.
20. Heartwarming Story
If you like reading great stories and seeing heartwarming pictures, then you have arrived at the right place because today we are going to show you how a family from Canada decided to adopt two moose siblings who were in need of a home.
19. Close To The Woods
A family from Canada who lives close to the woods was cooking a barbeque in the backyard when some strange noises started coming from the bushes. To everyone's surprise, the animal making the noises was a baby moose.
18. The Brother
After playing for a couple of seconds with the little moose, another one showed up. The family couldn't believe what they were seeing! The second thought that came to their mind was where is their momma?
17. The Moose Mamma
One of the family's members knew that sadly, a moose was recently euthanized because its legs were broken and the animal's chances of making it in the wild were slim. This meant that the two baby moose brothers are orphans.
16. Helping Out
After realizing that the two moose brothers don't have anyone to care for them, the Canadian family decided to help out. They adopted the two animals and started caring for them.
15. The Wild Forest
"The calves were not going to survive long in the woods without their momma," said one of the family members. This is when they knew that they had to adopt the two moose brothers and keep them around until they grow bigger.
14. Getting Permission
Moose are protected by law in Canada and this is why the family visited the British Columbia conservation office and ask for permission. Luckily, the animal rescuers told the Canadian family that they can adopt them for a short period of time.
13. Asking for Professional Advice
As you can imagine, taking care of the moose brothers is not as simple as taking care of a stray dog or cat. This is why the family decided to visit a nearby veterinary and ask for professional advice on what to feed the orphaned animals.
12. Having Fun
The family decided to name the two animals Chocolate and Clover. Isn't that sweet? The best thing is that Chocolate and Clover loved being around the family and they had lots of fun.
11. Going Home
Even though Chocolate and Clover were having the time of their lives, they are not house pets. This is why the Canadian family needed to find a special animal rescue center that would adopt them and provide them with a home.
10. Rescue Center
Fortunately, it didn't take long for the family to find an adoptive home for Chocolate and Clover. The two moose brothers were taken by the Northern Lights Wildlife Society's sanctuary in Golden, British Columbia
9. Five Glorious Days
"The moose stayed with my family for five glorious days," Lee-Ann Kramer. "Sleeping in my boot room at night, playing outside all day, bottle-fed goat milk every few hours and grazing freely on forest vegetation."
8. New Home
Now that Chocolate and Clover found a new home, they were happier than ever. The great thing about the animal rescue center that took them in is that they had other moose and this meant that Chocolate and Clover could make new friends.
7. Growing Big and Strong
Chocolate and Clover are not going to spend the rest of their days at the animal rescue center and instead, they are going to be set free once they grow big and strong.
6. Good People
We have to give praise to the Canadian family who decided to go out of their way in order to help two orphaned moose babies. They are good people and there is no doubt about that.
5. Lucky Animals
If there is something that we can be sure about, then it has to be the fact that Chocolate and Clover got really lucky to find their way to the family's backyard. Although, the barbeque smell surely helped.
4. Fun Adventure
The family members are saying that saving the orphaned moose brothers was also a great adventure for them too. They always see moose running through the forest but now, they finally got the chance to meet two of them.
3. Majestic Animals
Moose are majestic animals and there is no doubt about that. This is why they are protected by law and also why the Canadian family decided to help out the two moose brothers when they saw that they don't have a momma to take care of them.
2. Great Life
Let's hope that Chocolate and Clover will go big and strong so that they can live a great life running free in the woods.
1. Happy Ending
Even though Chocolate and Clover might miss their mamma, they at least got lucky and were saved by a group of good people.
