It was pretty clear what the big boy had on his mind late last month in Rocky Mountain National Park. While the female’s most recent calf grazed nearby, the bull let the cow know he was ready and willing.
It was interesting to watch the interaction between the two although they never did mate in view. The female will likely concede, if not to him, another bull. Then, next spring, she will chase off the current calf, forcing it out into the world on its own. Another generation will then be born and the cycle begins again.
Have a fantastic #MooseMonday!
