Bill Langer was driving from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia when he spotted something you don't see too often — a white moose.

Langer said he was past Stephenville June 15 when he saw the moose near the end of a fence constructed to keep moose off the highway. Langer says the animal stayed for about five minutes and did not seem to mind at all.

He said it was the first time he had seen a white moose and said it was "very amazing."

Though it's not known if this particular moose is the same one, the Newfoundland government gave special protection to a white moose on the Port au Port Peninsula back in 2002.

A news release from that time said, "Sightings of this particular moose are common and local residents have assumed a stewardship responsibility towards this unique animal."
