I believe this is a yearling whose mother has kicked it out on it's own and she has gone off to have a new baby. The mother has lived around our place for several years and even showed up with twins a time or two. We often found her sleeping in our yard in the winter with her young ones.
We are packing and in the process of moving at the moment and I will miss those moments when you look out the window and see something like this. I will treasure these pictures forever and hope this moose has a long happy life continuing to prune the next people's shrubs. As far as he or she is concerned that is survival and I say....go for it!
