i would get out my cerimonial kukri that is used to behead water buffalo, draw a circle in the snow, and challenge it to a duel.

Maybe she jumped the fence to get away from an "overly excited" male moose.

Or is it too soon for rutting season ?

Yea, Alaska has had a serious moose problem since the record snow. One has effectivly destroyed my fence (which will have to be replaced in spring) from jumping and such......I have apple trees in my back yard.

Hittin one with a car is like hittin another car in general. I think we're up to 260 moose fatalities this winter? Funny, winter aint over yet...for snow...or angry moose. They come out of the hills when its butt cold, and with this much snow..they don't have much to eat. Saw a yearling nosing through the trash....they are hungry and dangerous.

Wish they allowed hunting in the city limits.....moose is good eatin.

I was going to ask why they didn't allow hunting of them if there is an overpopulation problem at the moment. I'd rather see things like Moose and deer hunted and eaten than hit by cars and starved to death.

So would I, if they opened up the foothills to hunting at least that would offset the high cost of food in alaska. Everything, and I do mean everything is barged in by container ship or actual barge...to include 90% of the food.

It would keep meat on the table for sure. Alas, but Alaska is a unique state.....its liberally conservative..LOL

People that live here forget even that it is indeed a frontier on a scale that dwarfs most. I hate to see good meat go to waste. They come out of the mountains to escape heavy snow, wolves, and richard simmons...only to be hit by cars, trains, and such. When hungry they are worse than bears. They'll waffle stomp a mud hole in ya in a few seconds flat. They weigh as much as my ex-wife and can cause serious harm when pissed or stressed.

They walk right up to your front door, hang out at school bus stops, get tangled in yer xmas decorations, get drunk off fermented crab apple trees, and they can be an over all nuisance.

Great video though...im surprised no one was holding a scoped rifle yelling through a bullhorn "ITS COMIN RIGHT FOR US!"

Such a pretty girl! She looks well fed. Good to know moose are making it with the climate in flux. How fortunate you are to have such a treat!

Wow, that was really cool. I'm an animal addict. Here in San diego I am just thrilled to get Blue Jays and Squirrels. I feed them everyday. If that big girl was in my backyard, I'd surely be whipping up some banana pancakes for her. She is amazing. Please tell me people don't shoot those Moosez

This is a good spot for an educational message.

Feeding wild animals is a death sentence for the animal. They come to rely on food provided by humans instead of their natural feed. They start to frequent areas around people and loose their natural fear. Moose being even more dangerous than the Brown Bears have to be put down when that happens.

In a normal winter here I average a Moose in my yard about every day. This is the first winter in years I've not had a Cow and Calf around all winter long. I generally see them in the mornings in my yard or nearby.

I had a neighbor a few years ago who had a crab apple tree in their yard and they put up a 7 foot fence to keep the moose out. It did no good at all, they just go right over the fence. That poor tree never stood a chance.

Here the Moose are just residents and people don't even react when they see them. We know to leave them be and that they are the most dangerous animal. You get between a Cow and a Calf and your in serious trouble. Even though Anchorage is nearing 300,000 people now you see Moose even in the downtown area now and then. I get three or four a winter in the parking lot at my office. Except where the Wolves are out of control, the Moose are thick as flies and overpopulated in most area's. Some areas where they let the Wolves overpopulate though they wreak havoc with them by killing the Calves.

Nice video Alaskan Man, its nice to see such wonders. That moose looks so relaxed, like he's at home and doesn't have a care in the world.
