I got way , way ! too close to a Moose in Yellowstone Nat. Park once.

I thought I saw one go in too a birch thicket,

funny thing about birch thicket is,
when you are 50 feet inside of one,
it looks like wall paper all around you , your eyes go a little nuts, very disorienting

I stopped to listen for him ( the moose)
and while looking around

there were irregularities in the black and white
wall paper ,
I had to really focus ,

turns out I was only 40 feet from the giant beast
again about 70 feet too close. Eek

A black bear isn't afraid of you, but at the same time usually would rather not have to interact with you either. Just don't get between a mother and her cubs...

THAT is a big and old boar! Just check out the old/yellow teeth. Wink
