Good result. These things think like rhinos. If you piss one off they have no problem not just kicking your ass but can and will kill you. When injured they are scary. When mating season, (the rut) comes around they are known to stand on railroad tracks and challenge the train till it hits them. If you are hunting and injure one they become very dangerous. Some states require you to hunt in groups of at least 2 so somebody can call or go for help. The sheer size is amazing.
Add the attitude and you’ve got a big peaceful looking kinda goofy looking killing machine.
Also the long legs make them very dangerous on roads. If you hit one, male or female, the car tends to take out the legs and the massive body often comes over the hood and into the car with you. Many people are killed every year from moose one way or the other. Way more than grizzely bears or any other animal. Mean, huge, kinda goofy looking human killers. Is awesome to see one in the wild.
Damn they are gigantic things.
