Let this be a lesson in not messing with wildlife. Especially big, threatening wildlife that’s not in its usual habitat.
A woman in Colorado made the unfortunate mistake of approaching a moose that was grazing on a tree on the side of a residential street in Breckenridge last week.
Video footage of the close encounter was shared on Instagram, showing the woman walking towards the moose twice, attempting to touch its rump.
“That girl’s an idiot,” a person can be heard saying in the background. “You’re an idiot.”
The second approach nearly turned dangerous as the moose lifted onto its back legs, nearly hitting the woman with its front legs.
In the background, an older woman is seen attempting to cross the street. At the end of the video, a man gets out of his truck and walks toward her.
Anna Stonehouse, an adventure photographer, captured the moment and shared it to her Instagram account. “Can’t fix stupid,” she captioned the video.
Most people witnessing it, Stonehouse said, were horrified to see the unidentified woman “aggressively” following the moose across the street.
