Jack arrived at the center as a 3 day old moose with bite marks on his hind end, and a broken leg, and a 20% chance of survival. Vanessa, one of our fantastic interns took it upon herself to nurse Jack back to health. Because of her hard work, Jack is approaching 4 years old, and is a happy, healthy addition to the center.
Gilly & Nelson
2011 Moose Calves
Gilly and Nelson are the two moose calves that were rescued and brought to the Center in 2011. They have been put into the main enclosure with Jack, our other moose. When they arrived, these calves required round the clock care and feeding – but are always a favorite for our guests! AWCC kept these calves through the summer and ensured that they were wiened off of milk before the fall. Be sure to visit AWCC for a visit with Gilly & Nelson! To assist with their care, you can adopt them or make a donation to AWCC here.
REMEMBER – Moose calves are rarely abandoned by their mothers! If you see a calf that you think is abandoned, contact the department of fish & game. For more information, click here.
