Don't always get this close to our largest four legged friends, but some times they're happily chewing away on the side of the road!

Who would think, not knowing, that these are second dangerous animals to humans. hahaha the wiki entry for 'Moose' says some are so used to humans that they will actually act aggressively if NOT fed by people (when they are expecting some hand outs).

very close photos.. I hope you had food and were doling it out.
