A pair of snowmobilers in Maine got an unexpected surprise when an angry moose charged them.
According to ABC News, the run-in with the massive mammal ended without injury for the New Hampshire snowmobilers, but they say that the incident has changed how they think about wildlife.
Janis and Bob Powell saw the moose while snowmobiling outside Jackson, Maine, on Friday. They followed it on a trail for a few minutes, but it then came to halt.
"His fur was standing up, his ears were back, his head went low and [we] definitely knew something was up," Janis Powell said.
The moose stomped toward her husband, forcing him to duck behind his snowmobile.
"The only thing I could think of what I had to put between myself and the moose, and unfortunately that was just the snowmobile," Bob Powell said.
The moose charged again and Bob Powell ran to his wife's snowmobile, narrowly missing a headbutt from the animal.
Janis Powell then fired a warning shot into the air.
"I knew what size gun I had and that I might make it even more angry," she said.
But the moose then trotted off. Neither it nor the Powells were injured.
"We both have a new appreciated for moose and wildlife in general and will definitely be keeping more of a distance," Janis Powell said.
She added that they've seen moose on the trails before but the animals typically are scared off.
