Default Dimbo indeed!

Great picture... what was she thinking... she was lucky she wasn't seriously hurt... wondering if she was an "out of towner?"... I live in Wisconsin but have spent many times in the "wilds" of Canada and would NEVER approach a moose... hmmmm... yes Dimbo is a great description Thank you for the post

dimbo??? Is that a dumb bimbo? Yeah, last thing I would be doing is trying to pet a moose....

I somehow don't think she will make that mistake again unless Darwin is at work here.

Anchorage police said they did not request that state biologists deal with the moose because the animal wasn't going after anyone unprovoked.

This is good. I think that in a lot of places the knee jerk response would be to put the animal down.

for once the an animal is not killed over the stupidity of a human...I do wonder though if the person had been injured badly if the outcome would not have been different...

And she probably got up, shacking the cobwebs out, and said "ok, note to self, do not pet the moose...oh well"

"Oh looky....how cute.. a baby bear cub....here, hold my camera while I....."

Is it bad when you read news articles just to read the comments? I do that a lot.
