And March's Moron of the Month Award Goes to...


This guy. Because petting a wild moose generally doesn't end well. 

We've highlighted a wide range of morons here at Wide Open Spaces. From the guy who thought it'd be cool to wrestle an 11-point buck to the fella who figured he'd get his kicks from dressing up as a T-Rex to play patty-cake with a full-grown alligator, we've seen it all.

Which brings us to this month's well-deserving recipient. Getting up close and personal with a wild animal is never a good idea. For whatever reason, this foolish photographer in Alaska felt differently. And, as you're about to see, the moose wasn't too appreciative of his advances.

Wait for it......Dear Anchorage Photographer, now we both know that playing with wild animals is a bad idea, we hope you learned your lesson. Every year animals around Alaska are put down or have to be relocated due to human interference, wildlife is wild, please act accordingly! It's okay to smile, we think the moose did.

We'd say we're surprised by this guy's stupidity, but we've seen too many videos like this.


If that kick had connected better, it very well could've been lights out for this guy.
