Moose calf rescued from swift Snake

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – It’s an everyday kind of call in the line of duty around this valley. Sheriff’s Deputy Cody Call assisted Game Warden Kyle Lash with reuniting a calf moose and its mother Thursday evening.

The calf became separated from its mother when the pair tried to swim across the Snake River in the area of Highway 22. The little newborn was stuck under the Snake River Bridge after it and the mother made a few attempts to reach each other but the current was just too strong. Bystanders called 911, Teton County Sheriff deputies arrived and called Game and Fish.

Lash got the calf to shore with the use of a pontoon boat. The calf was reunited with its mother who was acting a bit agitated, but grateful in the end for its baby back.
