February 15, 2008: The moose fights back



In a shot called "Fighting Back", Joshua Sudweeks captures a great moment between dogs and moose. Joshua's flickr page contains the photostream that tells a bit more story: more than one dog was hassling the big beast before he (she?) decided enough was enough. The expression on the moose's face is just excellent, the picture of moose annoyance; the husky only shows confused retreat. The whole thing is framed by glorious white snow and the focus is squarely on the battle. Shown here by permission of Mr. Sudweeks, thanks and well done!

Moose don't smack you once, or just run over you, they tap dance on you, given the chance.

Talking about tap dance:
This one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrbNqpsJeoA) almost looks like fun, compared to this one: http://www.myvideo.de/watch/2408113

At 800-1300 lbs that's a dance you'll not soon forget.

Why the hell they call that moose attach?!?! Stoopid.

That's a good reason to carry a side arm while hunting..

The wolf looks like he's thinking "This isn't how it's supposed to work?!"



Undertoad  Friday Feb 15 08:41 AM

That's not a moose, it's a deer and the guy had stupidly put on some sort of scent meant to enrage it.



classicman  Friday Feb 15 08:45 AM

Thats not a wolf - its a dog and it's curiousity just got it in a lot of trouble with the moose.



TheMercenary  Friday Feb 15 09:30 AM

I'm with classic on that comment. Note two people, who prob own the dog in the background. Idiots.

"The Moose Fights Back"

Sounds like a spin off of "And the Cat Came Back"



gitnadoix  Friday Feb 15 01:03 PM

But who do you shoot first the dog for harasing wildlife in the winter, or the people for letting it.....i



TheMercenary  Friday Feb 15 02:25 PM

The dog is doing what is natural for it. The people need to be fined, heavily.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Feb 15 10:40 PM

If you look at the flickr photo stream, it's a park with lot's of people, many on skis, and lots of dogs. When the moose wanderer into the middle of this, the dogs, and moose, did their respective things. The people had little or no control over any of this.



sweetwater  Saturday Feb 16 07:20 AM

would a normal moose approach a pack of people and dogs, or was this one unusually brave / aggressive? i don't know, but i'm pretty sure my camera would have been airborne, along with the rest of me, had i been there. glad someone was steady enough to take the photo.



runswithknives  Saturday Feb 16 11:36 AM

I believe the kind of control you're looking for is called a "Leash" =p. The people in the back apparently figured that out, possibly the hard way like this dog and its owner will.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Feb 16 11:41 AM

Moose aren't afraid of much. In the climes they frequent they've become a problem for people, by wandering around cities, neighborhoods, parks and playgrounds.

On Wunderground, there is currently a picture of a yearling bull moose munching a pine tree. The caption reads;

Cuz up here in the winter, if you want your ornamental pines to remain above ground level, you cover them LOL. This year old bull was having himself a proper meal in Kenai in front of a lawyer's office when we found him. He was so intent on that shrub he wouldn't move. We saw 7 moose inside a 1/4 mile area, all in the "downtown" area of town.
