Close Call of the Day: How You Say Hello to a Moose in Canada

moose

 An Ontario driver came about as close to some moose as you can without one landing in his lap.

Dash cam footage from out of Hornepayne, Ontario showed the close call one driver had while trying to navigate some tough driving conditions.

While it looks like they are driving on a snowmobile trail, the road is simply covered in snow. Just to make things a little more interesting, there are four moose traveling the same stretch of ‘highway’ including one big bull.

Watch how close he comes to getting some moose steaks!

Warning: Graphic language in the video (go figure).

Okay, that was a close one there, Santa Claus. Better to share the original with his full reaction than to have all good swearing edited out!

It just goes to show you how much better moose travel in the snow than people. After a lifetime of driving in conditions like that, even I know that’s it’s hard to slow down sometimes when you really have to.

Take your foot off of the gas and drop it into low! (not the guy driving, that freight train with the big palmated antlers)
