Erikas Plucas is a farmer from Lithuania. He's used to wild animals and nature, considering his farm is right next to a forest. When Erikas found himself being relied on by a baby moose, he began to gain a whole new outlook on life, and of course, a brand new best friend for the rest of his life.

One day, Erikas returned home to a surprise! There, laying in front of his gate, was a baby moose. Erikas looked all around but realized the baby moose was all alone. As he approached the moose, Erikas realized the moose was no older than two weeks. In that moment, Erikas understood what was going on.

Erikas believed that hunters killed the baby's mother, and looking for safety, the moose wandered onto Erikas property. The baby moose didn't look too good, though. The moose looked like she was starving, and she had flies buzzing all around her dirty fur. If Erikas didn't do something to help her she would die. Unfortunately, the moose was scared of Erikas.

Even though she was terrified, the baby was too weak to stand, let alone run away. Erikas picked her up as carefully as possible and took her inside. He called Animal Services but they wouldn't be able to come until the following day. While he was waiting, Erikas called some friends for advice. To his surprise, Erikas was treated with aggression.

"'It is illegal, you should not do it, let nature take care of it' was all I heard,” said Erikas of his friends’ advice. They couldn't change his mind so Erikas grabbed some milk, and collected different leaves, to see if the baby would eat. Then Erikas continued to wait for Animal Services who, unfortunately, wouldn't be of any help.
