Movie: Life of a Twig Eater
There is a growing problem in North America affecting moose, the largest species of the deer family. They make their home in the Canadian Rockies or in Minnesota. The moose populations are declining at a rapid rate. One reason is that many of the newborn calves are not surviving their first year. In order to find out why, one intrepid cameraman spends a year documenting the life of a moose calf and its mother to understand what it takes to survive.
