All wildlife is potentially dangerous. If pushed they can attack you, attack is a natural defence mechanism, especially for moose. This snowmobiler made a mistake at about the 10 second mark when he decided he could "bump" the moose just like you do elk or deer. Bump doesn't mean bump but rather to come close to so to drive it away a little.
It's that time of the year. Snows are deep, deer, elk and moose are stressed from a long winter. If you know of a place where elk might be herded up or deer in yards,,, go somewhere else. During the next 4 or 5 weeks many cows or does will self abort if they are going to. They save themselves by giving up their young. It's the hard part of the winter. Record snow packs some places in the Northern Rockies.
What would have been better? To have stopped, gotten off the snow machine and ducked behind a tree until the moose figured out what it wanted to do.
Thank god for GoPro cameras, now we can see even more dumb shit.
I'm out of here for a caucus training. I'm supposed to run a caucus for the surrounding 5 precincts in a couple weeks and I should probably learn how to fill out all the forms and send the results (of all the uncontested races)
I got to say some weird comments. Freaked out over seeing a moose shot. Granted a bad thing but horrifying? It's like not knowing where hamburgers come from. The Ukraine? Now that's horrifying, real people. To anyone who is traumatized by this vid, don't open one of my diaries again, you're liable to see reality at any turn of the trail.
