I attempted to rescue a small Bull Moose (not the Cow in picture at left), unfortunately the Young Bull Moose died while attempting to cross Lake Michigan in rough seas. It is not uncommon for animals to swim across bodies of water; including the Great Lakes. Disclaimer: The rescued animals shown here were suffering from varied ailments. I rescued them as part of my professional duties. Please check with your individual state and the federal government for rules and regulations regarding animal rescue. All animals that I have rescued were turned over to a Federal and/or State Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for their rehabilitation and release; if possible.
