Best excuse yet for not showing up for work!
Hello, Boss I can't come to work today. A moose was born on my front lawn and the Mama won't let us out the front door! Baby Moose, 12-hours old, born in the middle of downtown Naubinway , MI .
"Makes it really tough to use the front door!"
Note: Naubinway, MI is on the north shore of Lake Michigan on
Route US-2 about 49 miles west of the Mackinaw Bridge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan .
In my 33 years of living in Michigan 's Upper Peninsula, I have never seen a new-born baby moose. The mother picked a small quiet neighborhood and had her baby in a front yard, near Highway # 2, at 5:30 AM. We were bike riding when we came upon the pair. The lady across the street from the house said she saw it being born. We saw them at 5:30 PM, so the little one was then 12 hours old.
What an awesome place to live!
