We know moose are big, burly creatures, but this particular moose also has nerves of steel to stand its ground and play a game of chicken with an oncoming train!
Moose are truly impressive physical specimens that can stand as tall as seven feet high, and weigh as much as 1,500 pounds. They’re eyesight is iffy, however, so if a moose is startled, it will likely try and use its enormous size to intimidate whatever it is – and that apparently includes trains bellowing through the forest as well. . .
As you can see, the moose had no desire to vacate the train tracks, and was even willing to give the oncoming train a bluff charge to prove it!
When you look at how deep the snow is on either side of the track, however, it’s easy to see why the moose was so reluctant to give up its spot.
