This white moose was spotted in Port au Port West over the weekend.
In 2002, the province’s Tourism, Culture and Recreation Department provided special protection for a rare and interesting white moose that resides in Moose Management Area 43 on the Port au Port Peninsula.
Sightings of this particular moose are common and local residents have assumed a stewardship responsibility towards the unique animal.
Moose hunting licences in that management area are not valid to shoot moose that are predominately white in colour.
