JACKSON, Wyo. — A bull moose briefly stole the show (and the internet) at a youth soccer game Saturday when it ran across the field during play.
Former Teton County Commissioner and real estate agent, Barbara Allen documented the scene in three parts, one of which has gained over 120,000 views on social media.
First, the moose approaches the field, then he swiftly storms across it while children and their parents frantically flee from the ungulate’s path. In the final video, a man can be seen chasing the moose away from the area on his e-bike – a surprisingly effective strategy.
Bull moose can be dangerous, especially now during the fall rut. Always stay at least 25 yards away from moose, adding more distance if the animal appears agitated.
