        General note

        Moose lost his left ear when he was two days old in Foy Township. A bear attempted to drown him by holding his head under water by the ear with his teeth. Trapper Joe Nadon was in the vicinity during the incident and rescued the moose. Albert Vaillancourt, a farmer just outside of Chelmsford, Ontario, purchased the moose which he named Moose from Nadon.

        General note

        The moose, Silver, had been caught in a fence when she was just a few days old and rescued by a farmer in Larchwood, Ontario. The farmer sold him to Albert Vaillancourt as a companion for Moose.
