Angry Moose attacks sled dogs in hard-to-watch video

The video below is from a Norwegian sled dog operation. The group was attacked by an angry cow moose for no apparent reason.

The moose hovers over the dogs, then begins to trample them. The sled dog driver fights the moose with a shovel, then the video ends.

It’s hard to watch because you can hear the dogs moaning in pain. Thankfully, according to the video’s caption, neither dog was seriously injured in the incident.

Watch the video and translated caption below. Crazy!

“We had a nice encounter with a sour moose today. Was on a training trip with a coffee break at Kvaløya husky. 5-10 mins before I got to Tommy so I saw a lone cow standing about 30-40m from the trail, I stopped and thought I should let her walk away a bit first to pass.. but this time.. when she saw us she came straight to the key with her ears behind and first stomped on my cannon then she continued to the key behind me.. and attacked the dogs and me several times.. .. next time the gun is with…
It went surprisingly well with the dogs, so far no damage to them, and no possessions or injuries.. and went well with me and Emily driving the second key.
I think this cow with such behavior should have been removed.
