A Calgary homeowner got a surprise visit from a hungry baby moose Saturday afternoon.

Vince Van Hyfte said the animal dropped by between noon and 1:30 p.m. at his back yard in the community of Varsity.

The moose snacked on fresh tree buds, took a nap, then departed around 1:30 p.m. (Photo: Vince Van Hyfte)

“The moose was free and just roamed around the area eating on the fresh tree buds before lying down to have a rest,” Van Hyfte said, in an email to CTV News.

He said there was no sign of a mama moose anywhere nearby.
