Young calf saunters down rural North Okanagan road

A North Okanagan resident caught footage of a young moose making its way down a rural road Friday morning.

The calf was seen sauntering along Baker Hogg Road, near Vernon, above Swan Lake around 8 a.m.

A safe distance was kept as the videographer zoomed in, essentially adjusting their camera to make the moose appear closer than it was.
