Not A Canadian Joke

A Baby Moose Walks Into A Coffee Shop, Eh?

... a Rabbi, a penguin, and a swish hair dresser turn to him and say ...

No, sorry, it’s not like that. Real moose. Real story. No joke. And it’s from Canada, eh, so probably there was no ... penguin.

A northern Ontario man found a baby moose on the side of the highway, picked it up and took it to Tim Hortons.

“She still had the umbilical cord and was still wet when I found her,” Stephan Michel Desgroseillers told Shirley Erkila, who posted a video of her petting the calf outside the coffee shop near Sudbury, Ont., on Monday.

“The wolves would have got to her,” Desgroseillers said.

In a posting on the radio station Q92 Rocks Facebook page, Desgroseillers said he was the one who picked up the small calf and took it to the Wild at Heart Animal Shelter, but not before having to keep it for the night.

On his own Facebook page, he said the moose calf was “the sweetest thing ever except for the crying.”

The male calf is now being cared for by staff at the animal shelter.

Coffee-loving Canadians were surprised Monday when they spotted a baby moose walking alongside a man into their local Tim Hortons coffee shop for a caffeine fix.

The man, Stephane Desgroseillers, told local media he spotted the moose next to a highway near Greater Sudbury in Ontario the day before and picked up the newborn after fearing the moose was in danger.

“The little calf kept coming back out on the road and wanting to go into the traffic,” Desgroseillers said, according to CTV News.

The moose ended up spending the night with its rescuer after Desgroseillers found the area animal shelter was closed.

It would only sleep for half an hour at a time, before waking up and whining for about two hours.

“I had a rough, rough night,”

The next morning, Desgroseillers put the moose back in his car to head back to the animal shelter, but not before stopping for coffee.

“I basically felt blessed to be in a position to have crossed a path with that little animal,” Desgroseillers said, according to CTV.  “I felt I need to share that with other people.”
...
CTV News reports the male moose, which Desgroseillers says was “damp and wobbly” when he found him, weighs 25 pounds and was just 1-day-old when found on the side of the road.

The male calf is now being cared for by staff at the shelter, where a trio of nursemaids are taking turns tending to their new resident.

They have named it Oliver.

“Only three people can be with him right now because he needs to bond,” said Adeline Charpin, an intern at the wildlife rehabilitation facility in Lively. “We’re doing all we can.”

That includes sleeping with the animal, who was just two days old when he arrived at the centre on Monday and requires round-the-clock attention.

“We need to stay with him and feed him every two hours,” said Charpin, one of the surrogates. “If nobody’s with him, he just cries.”

I kind of wonder ... other news sites covering this story say how Desgroseillers found the micro-mooselet while out quadding ... ie, riding raucous loud off-road dirt bikes/cars in the woods. Did that noise scare the mother away nearly the moment she gave birth?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
