Perhaps many capable outdoors folks would never consider themselves inside the probability of being attacked by a moose. What would these cute goofy cow-like creatures want with a skier?
The fact is that, although they’re not natural predators, moose are incredibly dangerous during mating season. In fact, in North America, moose injure more people than any other animal, a stat not that surprising when you consider that they stand anywhere from 5 to 7 feet and weigh anywhere from 700 to 1500 pounds.
So before you find yourself pacing briskly through snow with a 900 pound mammal trailing close behind, consider that you’re actually invading their territory. More importantly, make sure your buddies are more interested in your safety than their entertainment.
