Moose brings down hovering helicopter!


www.cnn.com

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A helicopter is not necessarily a match for an angry moose.

Instead of slowing down after being shot with a tranquilizer dart, a moose charged a hovering helicopter used by a wildlife biologist, damaging the aircraft's tail rotor and forcing it to the ground.

Neither the pilot nor the biologist was injured, but the moose was maimed by the spinning rotor and had to be euthanized, wildlife officials said.

Good day for Mooses?

Is it Mooses, or Moose's?

Moose are really, really tough... (moose in the plural is still moose, um_gazz, like sheep or quail)

Moose are also a lot bigger than most people think. I've read of cases where someone driving (usually at night) runs into a moose on a road. The car is typically totalled, the driver often dies, and the moose just walks away, probably wondering what the hell just happened, and why his side hurts a little.

Too bad they had to put the moose down, though, but they didn't really have any other option.

In Sweden close encounter with moose is a common cause of traffic accident. In some parts the most common.

Had one jump over the motor helm, once we drove by on our country road.

Felt like a huge plane passing over.

I remember watching a show on TV (probably Animal Planet) where a bear and an elk were fighting in a stream, (I tried to find it using Google but came up with nothing) if I remember it all right, the elk put up one hell of a fight, I think it was at least 5 minutes, before the bear FINALLY won the battle. (If anybody can post this video, PLEASE do)

Moose are a lot bigger than elk, if it was a moose against a bear in that video, it might well have had a different ending.

They are a huge animal and not to be taken lightly.
