Did they watch the moose pull a rabbit out of its hat?

We make fun, but a moose is a large animal and can be very dangerous.

They injure more people in Alaska than bears do.

Bull moose are the most aggressive and dangerous animals in North America.

I was watching one of the Alaska wilderness type programs the other night...the one with the wild, backwoods family that was burnt out of house and home by the PTB. They were trekking to a new homestead, had a flat on their trailer, and were stuck out in the middle of nowhere. Dad and a few others unhitched the trailer and took off to find a replacement tire. Two sons were left behind to guard their belongings. Just before dad left, a moose walked out of the woods nearby...just sauntering along. Their guns came out immediately. One of the sons explained...the moose has a brain about the size of a walnut. They’re mean, aggressive creatures that will kill you in a heartbeat...not to be messed with. The sons didn’t seem like they wanted to kill it...but would have if threatened...and probably dressed it out for food.

I saw an episode of that. Five sons and two daughters. All home schooled. Seem like good people.

LOL!

I always wondered, in what world, an amusement park that probably takes in a million dollars a day closes for two weeks during peak season for cleaning and repairs. Sheesh, they can clean at night, lol!

Poor ladies, moose attacks can easily be fatal.

Moral of the story is, pack guns, and get a real dog. Coonhounds wouldn’t of run off, and there are some other types that wouldn’t either.

That pretty much sums it up. They are the number one thing I’m watching out for when out in the woods.

Airedale terriers. One of the most courageous & protective breeds on earth.

This story reminds me a little of the whitetail buck that challenged a 640 pound elk lawn-ornament. The buck mistook it for a rival...& paid dearly. (Or as the conservation warden phrased it: “lawn ornament fight-lost.”)

Norwegian Elkhounds would probably make good moose medicine.

Yes, they’re great dogs too. I like coonhounds for my area because of the bears and cougars as well, and they’ll run them up a tree and keep them there.

Wow, that buck got schooled heh.

Free meat for him.

I’ve yet to see anything like that, but I don’t live in the sticks anymore.
