Bull Moose Dives Clean Off A Cliff, Swims Away Like Nothing Happened

Moose jumps off cliff

Did you know that moose could dive? To be honest, I don’t think they do very often, even though this fella did. I can’t imagine it was very graceful either, moose aren’t exactly known for being the most nimble of creatures. I mean, how nimble and graceful can you be with those big paddles on your head?

This scene comes to us from the island of Newfoundland on the eastern coast of Canada. Moose in Newfoundland have no natural predators and have become so abundant in the area that they are literally a nuisance. A nuisance animal that large leads to some pretty interesting interactions.

And while was exactly a problem, it certainly was one of those interactions.

A bull moose can be seen standing on the cliff edge looking like its contemplating the meaning of life. The people taking the video are out in the bay on a boat driving up by it, wondering how the moose got in the tough predicament. The cliff is pretty steep and the moose must not feel like it can make its way back up to the top safely. And he’s probably right…

As the people gets close to him he takes a few good steps and leaps for his life. Sprawled out as far as he can be the moose goes head first downwards. It looks awfully close to the rocks and is the strangest sight ever.

But to everyone’s surprise, the moose pops his antlers up above the water and starts casually swimming back to shore… like nothing happened. Just took a nosedive off a cliff, hit the water, and swam away… no big deal.

That dive tops the scales for moose though, I don’t think we will see one compete with it anytime soon.

Wisconsin Hunter Finds Remains Of Whitetail Buck Who Chased A Doe Right Off A Cliff

A buck in the rut knows one thing and one thing only… chasing does.

It’s the one-time hunters have a slight advantage on these incredibly intelligent animals. Hoping they will slip up and make a mistake out chasing a woman.

There are certainly a few parallels between humans and nature. This is one of them. Although men might not be this extreme, I’ve seen some fellas make some stupid-ass decisions thinking they’re going to get a chance with a woman.

Never seen a man chase a woman off a cliff, though…

This poor buck did.

Our man is filming on a beach, I believe in Wisconsin, off the coast of Lake Michigan, looking up at a large cliff. He notices an absolutely beautiful mature buck dead on the ground and goes over to check him out.

He’s standing there wondering how on earth a buck this old, mature and smart made the decision to leap off of this cliff. Then he realizes.

“There’s another deer up here, I don’t see any horns. It must’ve been a doe and he was in the rut”

Sometimes it doesn’t take too much to figure out what went on.

That is the only real explanation for something like that to occur.

This is why we need to think with our heads fellas…
