Colorado Parks & Wildlife Issues Warning After Mother Moose Charges Multiple Times On Video

By

Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW) took to their social channels to remind folks that is the time of year that moose and other wildlife are give birth to offspring and can be dangerous for people in situations where they are perceived as a threat to newborn animals.  CPW posted the following footage recorded over the weekend near Ironton Park, Colorado where a large cow moose makes multiple charges at the cameraperson. Moose calves are born during a 3-4 week period between the end of May and middle of June and CPW thinks there may have been calves in the vicinity during this incident leading to aggressive encounter. MORE INFO HERE:
“Moose will defend themselves and their young aggressively. The cow moose in this video possibly had calves nearby and charged a woman multiple times this past weekend near Ironton Park, CO. Moose can run up to 35 mph in short distances and frequent locations near water with an abundance of willows (their primary food source). If a moose displays aggressive behavior or begins to charge, run as fast as you can and try to put a large object between you such as a boulder, car or tree.”
