Normally, wild animals become agitated in the presence of humans, but when this Estonian soldier and his regiment went for a walk in the woods where they were stationed, he had the sweetest surprise. He was approached by a newborn moose who began kissing him. The man recognized that the cute little animal would be lost right away and went out of his way to save the day!
While participating in a military exercise on the shores of Lake Vrtsjärv in Estonia, Erich Jyri Prikko had an encounter he never expected to have. While walking in a nearby woodland, Erich spotted a helpless newborn moose. What he assumed was the sound of a sobbing cat turned out to be a befuddled little moose.
The man told The Dodo, “I heard some weird voices that reminded me of a cat or a young baby.” “I observed a nice animal approaching from behind. When I first saw him, I thought he looked like a dog. I soon realized he was a young baby moose trying to talk to me.
The young animal turned out to be alone, as his mother was nowhere to be seen. Erich lied down next to a tree to console the young moose, hoping that his worried mother would return soon. Nonetheless, he did not anticipate the newborn moose’s friendliness!
“He walked gently towards me,” Enrich explained. At first, he was pretty shy, but after deciding that I appeared to be trustworthy, he moved extremely close to me.
Despite the fact that he was very loving and caring and continually kissed Enrich, the young moose appeared to be very hungry, so the good soldier decided to intervene. He shouted for assistance, and someone arrived shortly after with a bottle of milk to feed the young moose.
He explained, “I called our veterinary office and told them what happened.” “I wanted to help the small calf more and wanted to know what I should do.”
Enrich had to depart after a few hours in the company of the newborn moose. But taking the lost animal with him would have made matters worse, so he left him where he was found, hoping his mother would return. Fortunately, this occurred sooner rather than later.
“We found very fresh, huge moose footprints the next morning,” Enrich recalled, indicating that the young calf had been rescued by his mother. “I was overjoyed when we discovered that the calf’s mother had located him, and I was overjoyed when we discovered that they had found each other.”
