Giant Moose Walks Down Median, Driver Stops For A Chat

One of the best parts of hitting the open highway is seeing animals doing their thing from out of the window. Horses, cows, gigantic bull moose. Okay, maybe not all of us have moose where we live, but in Anchorage, Alaska, where this video comes from, they do!

 

This isn't just any moose either. He's the Shaq of moose. He's absolutely massive! The driver can be heard saying "Look at this big fella here. Wow, come here, look at him, he's huge. Hey there bud, hey there bud. Hey there bud."

 

 

I'm pretty sure the moose heard him, but he didn't deem him important enough to turn and look!

 

Afterwards, the driver gave some backstory: "I was picking up my daughter when we came across the moose wandering in the street, so I decided to pull up next to the big fella and let the world basque in his awe."

 

 

Most people enjoyed the video, but some criticized the driver of the other vehicle for racing in reverse to get photos. They also criticized possible habitat loss, with one concerned commentator saying: "Kinda sad. Our increasing population is diminishing their habitat. I bet that road used to covered in grass and trees not so long ago. The tiny strip of remaining grass is almost symbolic of what's happening to the Moose's home."

 

Another thought that he may be injured, adding: "I hope he is OK, it looks like he has an injury on his rear leg."

 

 

Habitat loss is a concern for animals all over the globe as mankind spreads out, but the animal doesn't appear to be injured to us. His gait looks normal and free. We're just in awe of this fantastic animal! What do you think?
