WATCH: Moose calf almost swept away by Russian River

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - It was a scary moment for some people fishing on the Russian River, as a moose calf struggled to cross the water, and was almost swept away.

In a video sent to Channel 2, the viewer, Alexa Black, describes the moment she caught on camera.

“This was their second attempt to cross,” said Black. “The baby almost got swept away the first time. So scary, but so cute.”

In the video, it shows the adult moose taking off across the river, and the calf following close behind. The calf appears to lose its footing and get caught in the current.

Luckily, the calf was able to recover, and make it to the other side of the river.

You can watch the whole video above.
