albino moose spotted in Whitefish, Montana

An albino moose is extraordinarily rare. These are real pictures. Unfortunately, they have been erroneously sent around the internet as having been taken in Boscawen, NH. They were actually taken in Whitefish, Montana.

Either way... what a beautiful animal. My thanks to Matt Goodwin for pointing me in the right direction.

The pictures were originally sent to me by a friend who got them through a chain email. The email said the moose was from NH.

I learned that the email was in error from the Concord Monitor. I believe that the error was also reported in the site you mentioned.

Coming from NH myself, I wish that the original post had been correct. :)
