Since the video of a moose eating pumpkins went viral a couple of days ago, another video of two albino moose from northern Ontario went viral again on social media that is initially from October of late last year.

Dwayne Sutherland, who lives in the area near where the white moose roam, told The Post Millennial the locals call them Spirit Moose.

The mother and her calf are still doing well a year later, and people take videos and pictures of them often.

"This video is from Hwy 101 between Timmins Ontario and Foleyet Ontario. These moose are almost seen every day between this area and everyone knows that they are not to be shot," said Sutherland on Twitter.

"A buddy of mine sees them all the time as he travels that highway twice a day."

The initial video went viral on Facebook and Twitter, getting more than 2 million hits, and was taken by Maurice Lamothe and Nicole Leblanc.

Albino moose are rare but live across Canada. Isolated moose populations tend to have more of the Spirit Moose because the recessive gene is more likely to be passed on in these groups.

"Yessir we do [see them], very rare. I have never personally seen one," said Yukon hunting guide DJ Sumanik. "Van Bibber, an icon in the Yukon hunting and outdoors community, harvested one many years ago."
