Almost died this morning trying to snap a photo of mamma moose and her child. It charged at me and I was scared shitless. Elsa told me to climb up a tree, which I didn’t of course because I couldn’t run in 2 feet of snow. So I just dived in the snow. Camera was drenched. I was drenched. I was not properly dressed because I was still in bed when Elsa came home and told me to run downstairs to see the beasts.
Her dad later told us more people die from being charged at by moose than from other animals. I was shaking for a good 10 minutes.
