Moose calves latest Minn. Zoo babies to swoon over

If the Minnesota Zoo wants a guaranteed ticket to success, we suggest they turn into a giant baby animal factory and proudly show off the little shits whenever they pop out. People just can't get enough of the animal babes.
In the latest announcement from our local zoo, officials debuted twin moose calves today. They male and female aren't even 2 months old and have been in hiding with their mother until today.
Moose can have up to three calves at a time that each range from 30 to 40 pounds. As adults, they can top 1,200 pounds. There are as many as 8,000 moose living in Minnesota.
Maybe a visit to the zoo will make up for once again failing to spot a wild moose up north this weekend.
