Photo and description by Jean Stimpson

Jean Stimpson, a Montana native and rancher’s wife, photographed this moose July the Fourth of this year while on the Big Horn Mountains above Dayton, Wyo. in the Little Horn Canyon, on the Wyoming side. Explaining, Stimpson said, “This is a cow moose typically found in swampy areas such as creek bottoms and cattail areas.” Stimpson advised moose are very protective of their young. If they have a baby nearby, do not mess with them. They will charge you. Finishing Stimpson shared, “They are very scared of something getting their young; they are not afraid of you!”
