Michigan Men Chased By Giant Moose on Ski Slope
Michigan men chased by giant Moose on ski slope. Imagine the scene: You’re out with your buddies on the slopes in Wyoming…just a beautiful sunny day going down the mountain when a GIANT MOOSE decides to take a run at you!
Here comes the moose
Film caught by Alex Momot (who’s the general manager at Vic Canever Chevrolet in Fenton, Michigan), Kenneth William Rynearson, and William Fohey II shows the big ass moose running closely behind Rynearson as his friends encourage him to ski faster (ya think?)
“Nothing like [taking] a corner and almost hitting a moose 10ft from you then watching it chase your buddy down the hill,” said Fohey in a Facebook post (see below)
A Moose Can Go How Fast?
I’ve got to be honest – when you see video of a Moose (yes I use a capital M…out of respect), we used to think the pictures were edited to make them look bigger than they actually are…I was wrong. Not only can Moose (again, capital M) run up to 35mph, but an adult male can get up 1,600 pounds (and six feet tall). So when we see Michigan men chased by giant Moose on ski slope…we’re glad it turned out okay. Because this is nuts.
I remember last year we had a woman in Alaska get kicked in the head by a Moose chasing her dog. Remember this?
Where to find Moose in Michigan?
If you’d like to see some wild Moose in Michigan, you’ve got to head up to the Upper Penisula and the Moose capital of our great state – that would be Newberry, Mi…hell, they’ve even got a mascot (why hasn’t Moe Moose been to a Red Wings game?). More sightings of Moose in Newberry than anywhere else in Michigan (
There’s also a poem for Moe Moose:
|I was floating down the Tahquamenon
One warm and summer day,
When I saw a monster slurping
Tea-colored water from the bay.
|He slowly raised his head,
His antlers oh so wide.
I knew he saw me tremble
I searched out a place to hide.
When he let out this awful snorting
|As I sat still and watched him,
I had no further fear.
He was quiet, polite and gentle,
But man, he was big for a deer!
That is when I remembered
