Moose gives birth in the parking lot of an Anchorage hardware store
A moose calf was born in the parking lot of an Anchorage Lowe's hardware store on Tuesday, to the delight of shoppers.

"I just seen a brand new baby moose 15 minutes old born in a Lowes parking lot!!!" one onlooker posted on Facebook, along with several photos of the cow moose and newborn.

Anchorage wildlife photographer Coby Brock, 38, drove to the store at the Tikahtnu Commons shopping center on Muldoon Road after hearing about the newborn on Facebook. He said cow and calf were sitting in the shade in front of a Jeep, and the calf was still wobbly.

As a photographer, Brock said he goes looking for moose, but it was the youngest he'd seen so far this year. A video posted by Brock to his Kiss a Moose business page on Facebook showed the calf nuzzling up to its mother, which was breathing heavily in the midday sun as onlookers captured the moment on smartphones.

"In Anchorage, you're never surprised where you'll find a moose," Brock said.
