Moose are nothing to mess with. This week in Alaska a security video captured the incident of this moose attacking a little cocker spaniel that was let out into its own yard to do its business. The homeowner apparently wasn't aware the moose was nearby.

Warning - this video is graphic so if you don't want to see a serious pummeling don't watch. Also, just so you know, the little dog was injured but it survived the attack and is recovering.

Heck, most grown men will charge at you if you try to pet them. Why would someone think a large wild animal would allow it?

I saw this thread title over in the "Active threads" bar.

At first glance, I thought it said:
"Mouse charges at man trying to pet it in Colorado"

Come on, man. Is THIS what is making news headlines now?
Oooooo scary.. A charging mou... oh. MOOSE.

I've seen youtube videos of women trying to pet a pony and get attacked. It doesn't matter what the animal, they can all attack humans even a chihuahua.

You don't pet animals that are not domesticated or well mannered.

Hopefully, Bob didn't have any kids, as his behavior is known as "Evolution in action".
