My wife, sister, brother-in-law, and I were once photographing a moose off a logging road in upstate Maine when it started to trot very quickly towards us. My wife and sister have never let my brother-in-law and me forget how the "big brave men" beat the women to the safety of the car!
Moose can be testy.
LOL! Not even when you die will they let you live down that one :-)
Moose are overly "testy" (appropriate word) during this time of year. It's the rut (woohoo).
Here in northern VT you see some really strange behavior from folks who would refer to this as "upstate" VT. People think that just because these big lumbering animals seems rather benign, they won't attack. I've seen idiots from the states just to our south take their kids on their shoulders and move toward the animals as if they're going to pet them. (Darwin Award candidates for sure.)
As for the post that referred to humans killed by moose, that's due to car collisions, I'm certain, not attacks. Most of the year a moose will just walk away, but during the rut, watch out. Did I tell you a moose bit my sister once? Moose bites can be nasty.
Once again proving the old adage:
"You don't have to able to outrun the moose....."
