Ella came to Aspen Valley in the fall of 2015 from another rehab facility where as an orphaned calf she broke her leg in their care. Given our expertise in rehab of orphaned moose calves and injured wildlife, it was decided that Ella would be best cared for at Aspen. She underwent multiple medical procedures with us as well as physical therapy. Unfortunately, her leg has never healed well enough to allow her to be successful in the wild. As of July 2017, she has become a permanent wildlife resident at the Sanctuary. Ella is provided with fresh boughs daily, in addition to moose pellets, fruits and vegetables. Ella is an important part of Aspen's orphaned moose calves successful rehabilitation by acting as a surrogate mom.
