A moose calf reunited with its mom thanks to three Wyoming residents. The Sheridan Press reports TJ, Gauge, and Tiffany Rodgers heard that the calf was trapped in a fence in Burgess Junction. The family rushed to help. But the cow moose was still trying to protect her calf as the Rodgers tried to free it. After about 20 minutes, they were able to distract the cow and cut the fence. The calf was then able to unravel and reunite with its mom.
