Is an approaching moose an attacking moose?
Ive been taking a lot of pictures and videos of moose in the middle of the night and the day along the Courdelane river wetlands in Idaho.
Being alone and on a bicycle--I come right up on them, but a couple times they have glared at me then casually turned and started walking up on to the bank in my direction which I instantly fled since I was not even 100 feet away.
So I was wondering if I could actually get good footage by letting them approach a bit?
Both times this has happened I looked back after I had rode off maybe 300 feet and the moose were then standing exactly in the spot I had just been standing.
Is it possible they may have been curious and wanted to inspect without fear of an attack?
Or if they glare then turn and start walking out--is that in fact the beginning of an attack or almost attack where they intended to run me off or stomp me?
The bull moose in question I had followed from the other side of the lake--did that mean he likely was curious?--OR MAD?
