This man didn’t want the smoke.
We’ve seen people go absolute Railway of bison in Yellowstone National Park here recently, when three incidents occurred in one week because tourists ignored park warnings to stay at least 25 meters from the creatures.
Not to mention another git tried to run into you bighorn sheep in Glacier National Park and was almost sent to the afterlife after the beast almost attacked him for a split second.
Needless to say, people trying to play around with animals who don’t want to be disturbed is a tale as old as time, and often people get the short end of the stick.
I recently stumbled across this old video of a guy getting dangerously close to a moose in Estes Park, Colorado.
Now it’s uncertain how these two interacted, but it’s easy to see that the moose wasn’t thrilled with his presence… not at all.
You can see the moose charging at the guy at full speed in parts of the video and the guy looks like he’s really in fear for his life and how couldn’t he? He crouches behind a tree and of course keeps moving behind new shapes with the cow moose following him all the way.
If there wasn’t a nearby busy road where the man could easily escape, the situation could have ended with him being run over by that old girl.
In the video, you can hear some bystanders in a car yelling at him to jump in their car so he can escape safely, but he managed to escape without their help.
If you’re familiar with Estes Park, you know that moose are everywhere, which of course makes for some fun (and potentially dangerous) encounters.
