Moose attack survival skills

By far one of the most amazing creatures in the wild, Moose are also one of the most dangerous.

Signs of an aggressive moose include:
Walking in your direction
Stomping its feet
Peeling its ears back
Throwing its head back and forth
Should you encounter an aggressive, wild moose, here is how to prevent and survive an attack:
Back away with your palms facing the moose
Speak softly and reassuringly, like you would to a little child
If the moose charges, get behind a large tree or rock in order to separate your body from the moose. Most moose charges, like grizzly bear charges, are bluffs
If the moose attacks you, feign death by curling up in a little ball. Protect your head and neck with your arms. If you are wearing a backpack, your pack will protect your back
............Or always carry a roll of hot pink vet wrap. Subdues them into submission each and every time.

Okay, so he's not a a wild moose but a very peeved off one. Seems he thought just for fun, that he might try to slice the pad off his foot. Unfortunately, that leads to pink vet wrap, a sympathy limp and yeap, you got it, a cone of shame tomorrow since he can't leave the wrap on while I'm at work. Silly boy.

Later gators....
