A pair of moose made for a welcome distraction from study at Okanagan College’s Salmon Arm campus.
The two were seen dining on willows at the campus pond Friday afternoon, Jan. 17. Valerie Dean, a student at the college, was thrilled by the visiting ungulates, referred to them as the campus’ “new students.”
While she couldn’t tell if they were male or female, she said the moose appeared to be on the small side and young.
“They’re having a great time,” said Dean. “There are people walking around taking pictures, so they are watching and every once in a while their ears will pin back, but then they’ll just go back to munching.”
