They are massive animals They are massive and they charge I get so scared when tourists are all “oh yeah we got out of the car to get a closer look and ya’ll have some mighty impressive animals around here”Yes yes we do and they have mighty tired guardian angels because moose can and do charge at people Someone my mom worked with died hitting a moose on the highway Their eyes don’t reflect light In the dark they are literally nothing but a big slightly darker shape in the night Roughly every year in the town I grew up in a cow moose and her calf will wander through downtown Maybe once or twice If she’s aggressive enough the local Mounties will escort her through to keep idiots away I’ve definitely talked with people who thought moose were deer-sized or maybe horse-sized and I was like NO YOU DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND MOOSE ARE TERRIFYING Moose are terrifying you guys I finally live on a province where moose and deer exist I do not drive at night in fear of meeting one If you hit a moose going 90 on a highway not only is your car trashed you are probably trashed I’ve seen cars that got wrecked and there seems to be a consensus that at least half the time the giant fucking beastie just shakes itself off and continues gallumphing along the countryside If you fucking hit a moose with your car and their legs go through your windshield congratulations you are dead Massive hooves kicking you to death? Yeah Moose are fucking terrifying Bull moose won’t fuck with you too much unless you fuck with them but the time a bull moose casually swaggered his way past 7 year old me when I was sledding literally put me off winter sports for a solid month Momma moose and their babies though? I legitimately had to call in to work to be like “ey yo there is a moose in my driveway and I can’t get out” AND MY MANAGERS UNDERSTOOD Moose MOOSE I have to admit I thought they were like a Canadian deer before this The commenter above who claims that moose’s eyes don’t reflect light is only partially correct if you shine a flashlight in a moose’s eyes it will glow like a cat and then you will probably get killed to death by an annoyed moose but the reason they are so dangerous to cars at nights is that they are too tall for the headlights to reach Think about that Moose confirmed for actual kaiju Kaiju category Maple Now I kinda want a kaiju movie set in Canada where it’s just a moose Like a regular moose but more aggressive @ssalogel For scale a female african elephant is 72-85 feet at the shoulder according to Wikipedia A moose is 46 – 69 ft at the shoulder So instead of thinking “This animal is a bit bigger than a deer” you can think “This animal is barely smaller than an elephant” And they can run up to 40 miles per hour A 16 wheeler with fur Meme
