Baby moose attacks worker in Maine

Maine wildlife biologists oversaw a successful moose-capture project in western Maine earlier this month, but the effort didn’t go entirely as planned.

One baby moose apparently didn’t appreciate being netted and lashed out at a member of the crew after it was released.

Wes Livingston, a contract worker for Aero Tech, the New Mexico-based company that conducted the helicopter work, ended up on the wrong end of the moose’s hooves.

“You won’t believe I just got my butt kicked by a calf moose,” Livingston says in a video of the encounter, which took place near Jackman, Maine. “You know, they’re pretty tough in Maine.”
