This is not a zoo.
I repeat NO ZOO.
There are thousands of warning signs throughout these parks. Hundreds of employees enforce these rules and strong recommendations. Along with new videos popping up all the time poking fun at people who put themselves in danger. I mean, certain parks literally have pages dedicated to dumb tourists…
And it’s one thing to get close to an animal when you’re young, relatively healthy, and at least able to To attempt and run away when everything goes south. But if you’re not quite as quick as you used to be, then maybe keep your distance, right?
Moose are, on average, a huge animal. And the larger than average ones are just enormous. They can push 1,000 pounds and have antlers that alone can reach up to 6 feet long, coming to sharp points just waiting to impale you.
This group of tourists stopped at the side of the road to take photos of a huge bull moose. The moose does not immediately appreciate the attention it receives.
The tourists seem to think they are protected by a 3ft high fence from an animal averaging 5ft at the shoulders…I don’t see any logic.
The moose is annoyed and jumps over the fence to scare the idiots.
Needless to say, he succeeds as they all run away as fast as they can…some not as fast.
Someone has to come and get his grandma who is hunting a bull moose in the park.
