Anchorage Dog Walk Takes Terrifying Turn From Aggressive Moose

Insane footage – via NBC News – from a traveling car that videoed a charging moose in Anchorage that ran over a woman and her dog. Fortunately, the pair are OK. But terrifying moment. Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s moose safety section reminds how dangerous moose can be to humans in the Last Frontier:

While moose are generally perceived to be less dangerous than bears, more people in Alaska are injured by moose than by bears each year. Moose will usually flee when threatened but under certain circumstances, they can become aggressive. People can be hurt when moose charge, stomp and kick to protect themselves or their young. Understanding a moose’s body language when stressed, can help you stay safe.
