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?
I also initially misread the title as "mouse" and had exactly the same reaction!

Stupid is as Stupid does. Only a complete fool would do such a thing. Hope this person has not sired any offspring.

I was in a rental car in Hamilton Montana once for business. I was driving down the road on my way to Missoula and 2 moose were crossing the road in front of me, a mother and a calf that was pretty big maybe a yearling. I stopped and waited for them to cross. The calf turned and started walking towards me and stuck that big head right inside my window. I was scared to death that mom would charge my car but it all worked out. After the calf had satisfied it's curiosity, they did move on.

We used to go to brunch at Snowbird in Utah and many times there would be a moose in the parking lot. I gave them a wide berth but I was amazed how many people would walk right up to them!

There's a little dent in the hood of my car where a protective momma moose kicked it. Came out of the driveway early one morning (still dark) just in time to see a yearling barreling down the road towards me. Don't know why. Neighbors let their dog run loose so it might have been chasing it. Mom was close behind. The calf veered off to one side at the last second, but momma obviously couldn't make up her mind whether to follow the calf or threaten the car. She did the latter. My Subaru is a lot lower to the ground than a moose, so her hoof clipped the hood. I remember looking UP into her face as she ran by.

My favorite run in with moose happened after dark one winter day on the way home from work. The road was completely iced. A Zamboni couldn't have made it any smoother. Headlights picked up two moose standing in the middle of it chatting about who knows what. One started walking away, but it lost its footing. In slow motion its legs splayed out from under it. It slithered, fell, got up on its knees, slithered some more, but finally reached the shoulder looking totally embarrassed. The other moose stood there watching the whole thing with interest, then did EXACTLY the same thing; the slow sprawl, the fall, the slithering, and the walk of shame. It was like live instant replay. I was laughing so hard had to pull out the hanky.
