Now this is a MOOSE!

Always, always defer to the moose.

When I was kid I ran into one. Luckily I knew to run in the opposite direction yelling, "It's a moose, a moose! An M-O-U-S-E!!"  I wanted to warn my parents and instead I ended up as an entry in family legend.

When The Engineer worked in the woods for a summer they had a moose take apart an entire
pickup.

This picture was taken in Denali National Park so he's safe.

Yeah, I think it's better to enjoy him from afar ... like in a picture on a blog!

WoW!!! Now that is a MOOSE! When I lived in Fairbanks, I remember seeing vehicles which had collided with a moose and there wasn't much left of the vehicle but the moose walked away. Amazing animals. The moose was re-introduced to Colorado many moons ago and now, because there is no natural predator, the Moose population has increased dramatically. I quite frequently hear of people encountering them.

pickup" - seriously? WOW!

Did he fix it? (The pickup, that is...)

The pickup's frame was molded around the engine when the moose got done with it. Once that was wrenched off and the windshield replaced it worked.

We ran into one when at Yellowstone National Park when I was about seven. My Mom and I sat in the motorhome playing cards, when the vehicle began shaking. We looked out the window, and a giant moose was tugging on the awning to tear off a piece.
