A mother moose and her calf graze in the green space near the intersection of Fidalgo Avenue and South Willow Street on Monday, June 13, 2016 in Kenai, Alaska. When spring arrives, moose cows drop their calves — young can be seen from approximately the third week of May until well into June, according to a press release from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. People should steer clear of young wildlife to avoid a potential encounter with the mothers, who can be aggressive while trying to protect their young.
