That’s not an animal you want running towards your car…
Moose are massive animals that can absolutely crumble a vehicle as we’ve seen before.
Bull moose can weigh up to 1,500 pounds and stand over 6.5 feet tall at the shoulder. Cow moose can weigh up to 1,000 pounds and stand over 5 feet tall at the shoulder. These are massive animals, the larger members of the deer family and the second largest animal to roam North America.
Moose antlers are unique in that they are broad and flattened taking on a paddle-like shape, rather than branching like those of other deer species. They are also the largest antlers of any deer species, with adult males sporting antlers that can span up to 6 feet across and weigh up to 70 pounds.
Moose fatalities are fairly common in moose country. Every one who has lived in heavy moose country has kept their eyes peeled while driving through the dark. These massive creatures are not what you want to come face-to-face with in a vehicle.
This moose wanted the smoke though…
A car is seen driving on a snowy back road as a moose pops out of the ditch line in front of them.
The car slows down as the moose speeds up heading right for the vehicle. As it gets closer it puts its head down as if it wants to go head-to-head with the car. At the last second the moose jumps out of the way and runs by the car.
I think the both parties would lose in that collision… just a little moose chicken.
