I don’t consider myself an expert in wildlife or really anything outdoorsy, but I feel like I know the basics when it comes to wild animals. Bears are big and scary and can eat you. Snakes can be poisonous and creepy. Deer can ruin your scenic drive down The Merritt Parkway.
One thing I had NO IDEA about was how moose can apparently run. Pretty fast too. I always thought they just lumbered around like slow, massive creatures. Here’s video proof from East Hartland, CT via NBC Connecticut’s Ryan Hanrahan.
Next time I come across a moose somewhere on these Connecticut streets or woods I guess I won’t try to outrun them. Who knew?!
