Everyone loves a good wildlife picture, but getting run over by a semi with antlers isn’t worth it.
There are plenty of veteran photographers that worked their way up through the ranks and found themselves in the job they all dreamed of: wildlife photo journalist extraordinaire.
While we all want that great outdoor picture to put on the mantle, getting killed for it wasn’t part of the plan. Even though no one was hurt in this video, that’s just too close for comfort.
Call me crazy, but some dude in camo sweats and a hoodie with a dollar store digital camera isn’t a professional photographer. I’m willing to bet that he got some great pictures of that amazingly beautiful bull, and the memory of a lifetime, but moose are unpredictable and that guy was in no position to run—not that running could have helped him.
Use common sense and caution when wild animals are present. One good photo isn’t worth a lifetime of pain or worse.
