VIDEO: Colorado Hiker Uses Tree To Block Moose Charge

AnimalsGood instincts by this hiker in Clear Creek County who ducked behind a tree as a moose charged. Fortunately the moose hit the tree instead of the person. Moose can weigh up to 1,000lbs and can stand 6-feet-tall. Colorado Parks and Wildlife say moose attacks are the most common in the state and the population of moose is growing causing more potentially dangerous encounters in the Denver metro area.

Officers urge residents and visitors to use the zoom function on your camera or use binoculars to see the animals and never walk up to get a picture or better view. If a moose licks its snout, pins its ears back and/or raises its hackles on its hump or shoulders, you’re too close and need to move away. They also say dogs need to be on a leash as moose will most definitely attack if they come upon them. You should also never feed wildlife.
