A cow moose nudges one of her twin calves out of the frigid water of Grewingk Glacier Lake at dusk recently. The calf ran to the water from a stand of alders as its mother was violently fighting off another cow that appeared to be trying to take the calves away. The second calf died in the brush during the struggle. The cow worked for several minutes to keep the remaining calf on its feet once they both got out of the lake. They then walked down the shore before returning to the forest.
