Moose Potentially Infected With 'Brain Worm' Crashes Party

By

A bull moose crashed and Ontario man’s party when he strutted right into their shed last month. The moose pokes his head into the shed and even begins to walk into the building in the video below.

An Ontario government official suspects that moose might have been infected with a brain worm that makes moose unafraid of people. They can get the infection when eating snails or slugs infected with the worm. Crazy.

Thankfully nobody was injured and the moose retreated shortly after this video was captured. I can’t help but laugh at the thought that these guys were probably all hammered drunk when this moose approached their shed.

This encounter probably seemed a whole lot funnier under the influence of a few cold ones…😂

“A curious moose crashed a get-together in a shed at a farm near Sudbury, Ontario. Jacob Rintala was hanging out with friends in his shed on September 25 when the party was interrupted by the giant gatecrasher. Footage by Rintala shows the moose checking out its surroundings, and even letting Rintala touch its snout. The animal then takes a few too many steps inside for comfort, much to the surprise of Rintala and his guests. Speaking to CTV News, Rintala said, “It was my first encounter with the moose. He came to say ‘hi’ and stuck around my farm for the rest of the weekend.” According to the same CTV News report, Morgan Kerekes, of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, said she believed the moose was young, and may have been infected with brain worm. “A moose infected with brain worm could be this bold and unafraid of people. Moose become infected when they eat snails or slugs infected with brain worm larvae while feeding on vegetation,” Kerekes told CTV News.”
