I was thinking the very same thing, That moose was unbelievabley calm for the situation he was in and things could have easily took a turn for the worse in an instant, people have been stomped and trampled and severely injured time and time again when coming into close contact with a wild bull moose. It's truly amazing it turned out the way it did.

I've heard of people hitting a moose with a car, then seeing the moose wander back into the bush like nothing happened. I'm surprised this one didn't rip that swing set out of the ground and drag it around with him.

Especially in Alaska where the Moose are freakishly large. Hats off to him.

Agreed, Also with all the bad news these days a story like this can make your day a little better, at least it did for me. smile.gif

Heh, biggrin.gif Yeah that swingset must have been a little more stout than your avg everyday backyard swingset. wink.gif And about Moose getting hit by a car and walking away, While I don't doubt this has happened unfortunately it is most probably rare. sad.gif Sometimes they aren't crippled or incapacitaed but they are injured bad enough that they end up suffering and die slowly or their chances of survival are greatly diminished against predators such as bears and wolves in the wild.
A fair amount of Moose are hit by cars trucks and trains here in Alaska,There is usually a quick response to the roadkills and citizens can get on a list to be called to come and harvest road killed Moose or the meat is donated to feed the homeless and less fortunate. Most truckers carry a firearm for this reason among others so that if they hit a Moose and it isn't killed but is crippled and/ or dieing they can put it down so it doesn't suffer any more than it allready has.

Yeah we got some big boys up here, I think the world record harvested Moose is still from here with a 75 inch antler spread and 36 points.
Definately freakishly large. Ive seen a pic of that Moose and the antlers on that monster made him look almost prehistoric.
I found some footage on youtube that shows a pretty big boy and some pretty good size coastal grizzlies as well, If you look close at the Moose at 2:00 in it looks like this Moose has had some previous run ins with bears, check out his back and side midway between his front and hind legs, kinda looks like clawmarks, not really sure what else it could be knowing how tough moosehide is.

Hehe.. I can believe that. An animal that dusts itself off and wanders off after a collision is an animal that doesn't take no crap !! Respect. cool.gif
