На берегу Волги заметили лосёнка
В понедельник, 18 мая, жители Самары заметили теленка на Волге. Животное выбрало небольшой лес возле жилого дома на улице лейтенанта Шмидта.
- Сначала мы привели его к памятнику, потому что он простоял две минуты без движения. Потом он увидел нас и побежал в кусты, рассказали очевидцы.
В воскресенье, 17 мая, на заброшенной территории масленниковского завода был замечен теленок.
Горожане предполагают, что лоси плыли в Самару по Волге - с правого берега. Это было уже в 2016 году. 17 мая рабочие на пристани, расположенной в районе Нона-Поляна, увидели корову лося с теленком, подплывающую к берегу Волги. Взрослое животное было поражено и возвращено к реке, плывущей в противоположном направлении. Теленок остался на пляже и скрылся в неизвестном направлении. Во время поимки животного пострадал сотрудник отдела охоты и рыболовства.
