Sudbury Man Takes Abandoned Moose Calf to Tim Hortons
It would be impossible to get a story more Canadian than this one. A Sudbury man helped rescue a wandering moose calf on the side of the highway and stopped by a Tim Hortons before handing the newborn animal over to a wildlife refuge centre.
Stephan Michel Desgroseiller took the calf in after his friends tried to tried to return her to the woods, only to find the young animal wandering back into traffic. Unable to make contact with a centre for drop off, CBC reports that Desgroseiller brought it home for the night, where the day-old baby moose slept in his bed, distressed at being alone.
The next day, he drove to the Walden Animal Hospital, making a quick stop at Tim Hortons where the calf was, you can imagine, a hit.
