Artemis was just a spring calf near Endicott on Alaska’s North Slope when a grizzly attacked her herd and scattered them. She took shelter under a building for the next three days, but the herd never returned.
A rescue effort to save the orphaned musk ox required her to ride a boat, truck, airplane, then truck again before she arrived at her new home at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage.
“It was important to get her here to provide food and care,” said Trish Baker of the the center. “Most of the animals at the nonprofit sanctuary are orphaned, injured or abandoned.”
