What's cooler than seeing a moose in the wild? Seeing a baby moose and a mama moose strolling down a highway together.

The person who filmed this adorable video spotted the pair walking alongside a highway in Homer, Alaska. What happened next just could not be avoided.

"My wife and I were driving home and saw a baby and mama moose next to the highway and we decided to stop to let them cross the roadway," he said. "They decided to walk down the lane we were driving on. About a minute of trailing them at a slow 3 mph, my wife who was driving told me that this would be a good opportunity to film the mom and calf. From what I understand, the baby and mother safely crossed the road and went to rest next to the nearby Paul Banks elementary school. The school the next day live-streamed a video of the moose and made the area they were in off-limits to students."

The baby moose must be brand new because he's still getting used to his little land legs.

The Alaska moose (Alces alces gigas) or giant moose or Alaskan moose is a subspecies of moose that ranges from Alaska to western Yukon.

The Alaska moose is the largest North American subspecies of moose. Alaska moose inhabit boreal forests and mixed deciduous forests throughout most of Alaska and most of Western Yukon.


Like all moose species, the Alaska moose is usually solitary but sometimes will form small herds

    They should have called the police who could have called an organization to get Mommy and Baby back "home". Or a safe place.
