I find it interesting that so many people know George Washington Carver as “that Negro that invented peanut butter,” when he is also credited with being the father of Chemurgy, more commonly known as biochemical engineering.
No no, you don’t understand, moose really do get that big. Take it from a Canadian. I’ve seen that bullshit in person. Scary as all heck.
And that’s how people can die if they hit a moose. Seriously, one of our fears when driving in the country is having to deal with this scenario of a moose jumping out in front of the car.
moose are actual legit ice age megafauna; theyve been here since the ice age, they are old as fuck. they also are pretty terrifying and ive echoed this before but i went to wiki and “In terms of raw numbers, they attack more people than bears and wolves combined” and “In the Americas, moose injure more people than any other wild mammal and, worldwide, only hippopotamuses injure more.”
like, fuck off with that
This is why everyone who lives in my area is taught as kids how dangerous moose are and how to avoid them while hiking/camping a ton more than bears or coyotes or wolves, especially in the spring, after most females have given birth, and during the fall, when they’re mating. A bull moose getting ready to mate is one of the most dangerous animals out there.
Moose are able to take out bears and wolves, even grizzlies. They’re terrifying.
