Intense? Yeah, but looked to me like that moose wasn't charging and was more just uncertain where it could run safely. Based on the dog, looks like it was in one of the Scandinavian countries or maybe Russia.

According to the article it happened in Sweden where a popular rifle is the 6.5 Swede which is real close to the 6.5 Creedmore.

I also agree with JC the moose was just looking for a place to go

That video was nuts! I watched it a few times for fun. I agree with Johnny and Critter, not a charging bull. All he knew was that he was taking fire and trying to get away. He just happened to almost stomp the hunter by accident while he tried to escape.

I've been so close to moose numerus times I still wonder why I haven't been stomped. Just luck I guess.

Definitely crazy ! I was amazed how the barking dog had no effect on the Moose.

They use those dogs to chase the game to the hunters. It's one of the reasons that bull is so frantic and confused.

Very few places still allow using dogs to chase deer/big game in the US.
