White Moose

A relative in Newfoundland took these photos of TWO white (albino) moose (is that the plural of moose? I’m thinking meese).

Two white moose in Newfoundland

white moose in NewfoundlandAccording to the Newfoundland and Labrador government they’re common:

Special protection has been provided for a rare and interesting white moose that currently resides on the Port au Port Peninsula, MMA 43. Sightings of this particular moose are common and local residents have assumed a stewardship responsibility towards this unique animal. Hunters who hold a valid moose hunting licence for MMA 43 should be aware that these licences are not valid to shoot moose that are predominately white in color.
