Footage Captures Birth of Moose Calf in Anchorage, Alaska

A newborn moose was filmed experiencing its first moments in the world in Anchorage, Alaska, on May 18.

Chris Koonce shared this footage of the the moment a moose gave birth to a calf, which he said was filmed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska’s largest military facility. Koonce said he was working when he saw the moose laboring outside his office building.

The video shows the mother tending to the calf, cleaning it and propping it up. Credit: Chris Koonce via Storyful
