A mischievous moose rubbed a sedan the wrong way in the foothills of Boulder County.
The encounter happened on a foothills trail and a passing driver named Chris Devlin recorded a video clip, according to Boulder County Open Space.
Officials remind park and open-space users that this time of year is rutting season for moose and elk and the big animals are “feeling quite ornery right now!”
Open space posted a few reminders about moose and wildlife:
- Keep your distance, no selfies.
- Moose are among Colorado’s most dangerous animals.
- Moose are particularly agitated by dogs, pets should be on a leash.
- Moose are extremely protective of their territory.
Devlin did the right thing staying in his vehicle and keeping a safe distance from the moose.
In the video clip, the moose pays particular attention to the rear driver’s side panel of the dark-colored car, dropping its head and rubbing its rack along the vehicle. Devlin honks his car horn a few times, chasing the Moose off into the woods before further damage is done.
