Several days before, an adult moose had been found with a terribly broken leg and she had to be euthanized. These calves, Kramer realized, were probably her babies.
So Kramer did what their own mother could no longer do — she decided that she would take them home and take care of them until expert help could come.
Normally, she wouldn't think of intervening with wild animals, but Kramer got permission from the British Columbia conservation office to foster them until they were taken into government care. "The calves were not going to survive long in the woods without their momma," she explained.
