Bull Moose Denali, Alaska

This huge male moose was in full rut (mating season). Moose are huge animals with some males weighing in excess of 1,200 pounds. The bulls (male) become very aggressive during the rutting season and battles among dominate bulls are frequent. This one became very agitated when wolves began howling from a mountain behind him. In the last shot I suddenly realized that I had nowhere to run!!!!
