5. Hmmm, mating season is getting close.
Don't even try getting near one of those during their love fest time.

8. A friend of mine got his windshield kicked in by a moose
He was in Fryeburg ME and pulled over to watch two moose. The male turned and saw him and ran 100 yards to his parked car, turn and kicked out the window with his hind feet. My friend was a veterinarian...lol

16. A friend of mine "met" a moose once...
She compared the experience to coming face to face with a very large ATV.
She's never been inclined to exaggeration.

12. Woah.
When my brother lived in British Columbia, he used to say, that if you hit a Moose with a car, you would die, your car would be totaled, and the Moose would shrug it off and keep going. Seeing that picture, I'm inclined to believe him.

14. Do you know where in Maine this was taken?
and the moose is walking on a snowmobile/ATV path and not a road, right?

20. We went up to Jackman a couple years ago
to do some rafting. We saw a bunch of moose on road, but none even close to the size of this one!

22. what a magnificent creature ... that I would stay far away from
:D

Incredible. Wow.

And not to invite flames, but why the hell do people think killing one of these animals is a good thing to do?
