Moose charges snowmobile, flees after warning shot

Posted

JACKMAN, Maine (AP) - A New Hampshire couple got a scare while snowmobiling in Maine: They were charged by a moose.

Janis and Bob Powell, of Belmont, say they were just outside of Jackman on Friday when they came across a moose. They say the animal stopped and charged at them.

No one was injured.

Janis Powell tells WMTW-TV that they have seen moose on the trails over the 20 years that they've been snowmobiling, but the animals usually run off.

The moose took off after the couple fired a warning shot into the air.
