Best Of Mates: Keeper's Love For Her Moose
Moose might be solitary creatures by nature but one animal has struck up an unlikely friendship with a Norwegian zookeeper.
Anna-Grete Lindvik came across Svea three years ago when she was orphaned at just two-days-old when her mother was scared off by a dog in the woods.
The young animal managed to find her way to Anna-Grete's nature park - and the pair have been inseparable ever since.
"She means a lot to me. I usually say that she's one of the best things that has ever happened to me. To have a close relationship to a wild animal - she never had a moose mother, but she has me. It's like you feel it in your heart. It's touching."
Anna-Grete thought the young moose wouldn't survive the rough winter alone, so took her into her house where they slept side-by-side by the fireplace.
Now Svea has her own calf who Anna-Grete is also bonding with.
She say many visitors to the nature park do a double-take when they see the unlikely pair taking a stroll through the woods.
"I get different reactions. Most just stand there speechless. You can see their chins dropping down."
