A man had to run for his life after a moose attacked him in his yard.

The bull moose was about to hop on top of Brent Olson's car. He chased it away from his vehicle, grabbed his video camera and walked around his yard.

FTA: ""I had run out in my shorts from the morning and I started hollering at it, ‘Do not jump on my car, Mr. Moose,'" Olson said."

I understand why the moose was chasing you, but why did your brother chase you?

That is why it is recommended to carry a .454 Casull or .480 Ruger in Moose country.

It is but it is what’s required to defend yourself against large, dangerous game.

"I had run out in my shorts from the morning and I started hollering at it, ‘Do not jump on my car, Mr. Moose,'" Olson said.

I once shot a moose in my pajamas. How it got into my pajamas I'll never know.

Moose gone squirrelly...

“Hey Rocky, watch me goose a guy with my rack!”
“But that trick never works!”
“Get down on my knees...”

BAM!!!

I have gone through almost 50 rounds of rubber 12 gauge slugs in the last three years running off moose that were trying to stomp my dog to death. He's a big boy, a Leonberger, and he's on 100' cable run in my unfenced yard in Wasilla Alaska.

It's especially bad during the rut, the young bulls are the worst. They must think he's a wolf.

Tell you what, those rubber crowd control slugs do the trick. I usually find a small circle of skin with fur on it laying on the ground. In Alaska, it's legal to kill wildlife that is attacking your animals, but I don't want the hassle so I use non-lethal means.

I've been chased several times, and even hit one in the head with a small sledge the first time I had a dog-stomping incident.

When my fiancee was living in Wasilla his partner got chased underneath his truck out in the driveway. The Moose was using its front legs to try to dig the guy out from under the truck.
