Last year in a remote corner of Vermont, David Lawrence, a self-proclaimed mountain man, helped rescue an orphaned baby moose.  He named the moose Pete.  Little did he know that Pete would end up sparking a fierce debate, one that ignited the whole state of Vermont - from hunters to legislators to regular people who'd fallen for the gentle moose.  State of the Re: Union production intern Nick Gunner tells this story of what we risk, lose and win when we decide to love wild animals.
