haha kind of a funny coincidence, i just witnessed a completely different interaction between a full grown female moose and a sprinkler (the kind
people try to imitate in dance... do the sprinkler!)
the neighbor was watering his lawn when this moose walked over to it to try and get a drink, the spinning action of the sprinkler and the change of
pressure from the sprinkler was making it very difficult for the moose to get a drink without getting sprayed in the face.
the first few times it was sprayed it ran off about 100 feet, then slowly came back and tried again, this happened 4 times, but after the 5th time the
moose had enough of that, it reared up on its rear legs and started lunging down on that sprinkler with its front hove's (spelling?) it stomped the
heck out of that that thing, I've never seen a moose so violent before, from the safety of my fenced in yard and the fact that it was only a
sprinkler made the event incredibly humorous.
After it destroyed the sprinkler it then casually drank from the flow of water coming from the smashed sprinkler haha. After it had it's fill and
left, i walked over to find it had punched holes into their (Fairly new) lawn about a foot deep.
I felt fortunate to witness such an event, i should have went and grabbed my camera, but i didn't want to miss anything. Don't mess with moose they
will stomp the snot out of you.
