SNAPPED: Moose on the move in Teton Village

JACKSON, Wyo. — A moose and calf duo have been spotted a number of times around Teton Village over the busy holiday weekend.

Jackson local Mike McNamara captured a mama moose and her calf on the slopes off of Teewinot lift. Individuals can be seen close to, but not approaching, the wildlife.

Presumably, the same duo was caught on film on Saturday, Feb. 13. In this case, a man was filmed approaching the moose.

The mother moose and calf were walking from behind the Ranch Lot towards Snake River Lodge when a man walked out into the middle of the field and intercepted the moose.

As the moose kept approaching, the man did not walk away but instead, pulled out his camera and continued to stand by. In the footage, you can see the moose notably aggravated as the man appears to reach out and touch the mother moose.
