Erich Jyri Prikko is a conscription member of the Estonian defense force, and was recently stationed with a unit near the shores of Lake Võrtsjärv. It was there, last week, that Prikko decided to venture into the woods in search of, as he put it, an "alternative bathroom." But then a different sort of call of nature gripped him.
"I heard some funny voices that reminded me a cat or a small baby," Prikko told The Dodo. "I noticed some kind of a cute animal walking towards me. At first he reminded me a dog, but pretty quickly I realized it was a small baby moose trying to tell me something."
