Often, when we go hiking we are concerned about bears, when in actuality if you are in certain parts of the country, especially Alaska Moose attacks are much more common than bears.
So what should you do if you see a moose?
Keep your distance! If a moose sees you as a threat, It could potentially CHARGE at you. I don’t think you want to be any part of that.
If a moose does approach you, use the same method as mentioned with the bears, and attempt to prove to the moose that you are not a threat by speaking calmly while keeping your eyes on the moose. If this doesn’t work, UNLIKE the bear you can and SHOULD run from a moose. Although they are big animals they aren’t likely to chase you for a long period of time. Hide behind a large tree or car as soon as possible.
If you are going to be trampled by a moose curl up into a small ball and protect your head. DON’T try to fight a moose as you will most likely lose, unless you are the hulk, or something.
Moose are typically found by bodies of water and they are especially aggressive if they have their young with them. Don’t mess with momma moose’s babies. She will mess you up.
