Abandoned by his family, this moose has found another herd to belong to

Many animals grow and live in herds. The survival of one and the other depends on the others: they hunt, travel and live together in community for the good of all. However, there are times when some animals lose their families and are forced to find another group to belong to.

In Kittitas County (Washington, USA), some locals observed a lone elk that would approach farms in the area for company. Abandoned by his family, the animal sought to befriend the goats and cows in the area, but his search for friendship did not focus only on four-legged animals.
