An RCMP officer met face to hoof with the untamed aggression of a bull moose in Prince George early Thursday. And while his cruiser took a beating, the officer escaped with a bruise.
The officer was typing up a report in his parked cruiser beside a road just south of downtown around 1 a.m. when he saw two moose crossing at an intersection. He started his car and tried to stop another vehicle he saw travelling toward the animals.
As the officer neared the pair, the bull moose - distinguishable by its multi-pronged antlers and huge size - went into defensive mode, cantering toward the cruiser and breaking the front grille and bumper. The animal then jumped on the cruiser, denting the hood and cracking the windshield.
