Not the recommended mode of transportation for Moose. Is a little graphic.

http://www.metacafe.com/watch/96745/moose_vs_car/

Additional Moose facts:

  • The moose is the largest member of the deer family. Its scientific name is Alces alces.
  • Mooses are for the most part sort of a brownish color, though they can range from light beige to almost black.
  • The plural of moose is "moose." We at the Mickey Moose Club choose to ignore this fact.
  • Mooses are very large. It's best not to mess with them, especially during rutting season.
  • Each year in Alaska, there are more moose-related deaths than bear-related deaths.
  • Mooses are herbivores, and it's a darn good thing they are. Otherwise there'd be even more moose-related deaths.
  • The moose is the official State Animal of Maine.
  • The moose is found all over the Northern Hemisphere, in Europe, Asia, and North America.
  • The history of the name of this animal is somewhat confusing. Before the "discovery" of the New World, the Asian/European variety was called by names related to the English word elk. (Many of these names are still around — see the International Moose Dictionary, below.) The North American elk, or wapiti, is an entirely different animal found only on this continent.
    So... In Europe and Asia, an elk is a moose. In North America, an elk is a wapiti, and a moose is a moose.
  • The word "moose" itself is derived from the Natik word "moos," itself supposedly descended from the Proto-Algonquian *mooswa, meaning "the animal that strips bark off of trees."
  • Only the bull moose has antlers, and they fall off every winter. The cow has better things to do than grow silly appendages.

A Møøse once bit my sister ...

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse
with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given
her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and
star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo
Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst
Nordfink".

:D

:laughhard:I'm wondering how far we can actually go with this.
Probably pretty far, but it will require the utmoose dedication. Watapiti we don't have more participation! Moose we carry on alone, or will others horn in?


Cat, well quoted sir!

"The North American elk, or wapiti, is an entirely different animal found only on this continent. "

Actually the North American Elk is the same species as a Scottish Red Deer - cervus elephas!
The North American Elk is Cervus canadensis.

Their going to need a bull-dozer to put this one to rest. I've heard of side and back seat drivers but this is a little extreme. Your sure this guy wasn't swatting at Moose-quitos?:D

Cheers​

Well it appears that the driver was following too close from the way the moose entered the car. I guess it brings a whole new meaning to the term TAILING! :D

The North American Elk is Cervus canadensis.
To be pedantic:p, until 2004 all elk were considered subspecies of Cervus elephas. Since then Asian and siberian elk, and all north american elk are categorized as c. canadensis. Cervus elephas is the european elk, and can interbreed with canadenis sub species.
