Momma Moose Charges Dog Sled Team
Occurred on February 24, 2022 / Willow, Alaska, USA
Info from Licensor: "The camera being used is a 360 that was on a stick sitting higher than we were, so you can spot the moose and her calves on it faster than we did. When we did spot the moose approaching my foot got hung up in a rope, causing problems getting out of the sled. When I stood to go my foot got hung again, and down I went. The dogs were all 100% fine and all of them finished the tour happy as could be. I was also fine, just bruised legs thankfully. The guide from the second team that was behind us said he’s run dogs for 36 years and that was his first experience like that. We would 100% book with Snowhook Adventure Guides of Alaska again, and we truly did enjoy our experience with the sled team and environment minus this freak episode. We’re laughing now, but I won’t lie that was 100% me screaming when I went down. I’m not from Alaska, I have no experience with moose or dog sledding. Obviously, we were aware of wildlife and the possibilities, but you can’t expect me to react properly in a situation I’ve never even been in or prepared for."
