A traffic jam is definitely not the best way to start your day. With all the honking and shouting it’s never a fun thing to be in except for these lucky drivers. They were heading to their home, when suddenly the road was blocked with a majestic entry.

It happened on a busy highway in Homer, Alaska, where a moose mom and her new born calf ignored all the traffic rules while heading on their way. Thankfully, the respectful drivers showed a lot of patience to the lovely duo. Fascinated by the scene that suddenly unfolded beneath their eyes, some of the drivers even caught the moment on camera.

“My wife and I were driving home and saw a baby and mama moose next to the highway and we decided to stop to let them cross the roadway,” Jefferson Huntsman said. ” They decided to walk down the lane we were driving on. About a minute of trailing them at a slow 3 mph, my wife who was driving told me that this would be a good opportunity to film the mom and calf.”

The Huntsmans decided to share the lovely footage on Facebook and people absolutely felt in love with it. After all, that’s the king of traffic jam we all want to be caught in. As about the mother moose and her little one, who seems like hours old in the footage, the things went well. According to Jefferson who came up with an update to the initial Facebook post, “they’re both[the mom and the calf] doing great.”

“I’ve been in contact with a few people involving the momma and baby moose,”the Facebook post reads. “They came up to my backyard yesterday to feast on my lawn.” Scene like this are very common in Alaska, where live between 175,000 and 200,000 moose!
