Here a few of the moose spotted during our August Trip to Palisades Reservoir.
The trip itself was great as the weather was perfect, temperatures stayed in the high 70′s and low 80′s, and there were hardly any bugs which made the daily walks very pleasant. There was no water at the cabins due to the well being dry however the trips to the woods and McCoy Creek Campground restrooms weren’t all that bad. We had more than enough bottled water so being thirsty or having a lack of water was never an issue. A great trip.
Cow moose are very protective of their young and this is no more apparent than in this great footage of a cow moose ramming a truck after she felt the onlookers had gotten too close for comfort. Proof that cow moose are mothers you don’t want to mess with even when your sitting calmly in the safety of your own pick-up truck.
Here is some incredible footage shot in Denali National Park where a grizzly stalks a cow moose and her two calves down a man-made trail and through a parking lot. It’s pretty awesome knowing that events like these carry out every day across the world and occasionally right in a National Park Parking lot.
Wow, it’s now nearly August and this is my first post in almost 6 months which is sad because I have missed out on a lot of great moose news. Fortunately the Huffington Post got be back in the moose world by posting a video of a Norwegian guy taunting a moose in Norway.
What I find so incredible about this video is how close he gets to the cow moose without the moose full on attacking him. Sure there are few bluff charges which are enough to get this guy with running but nothing too serious.
The scary thing about this video is I can see myself doing the exact same thing. Unfortunately if it where me, I would be the guy who the moose seriously injures because of my stupidity and be all over the internet as “Idiot gets owned by a moose”.
