Ryan Decker of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, spent the day snowshoeing with his father and a family friend in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota, and were on their way to dinner when they had an unexpected run-in with a moose.

The moose took a liking to Ryan’s vehicle, so Ryan did what any sensible adult would do: he grabbed his phone and started filming.

Why was the cow so interested in the car? Simple.


Ask any Minnesotan, and they’ll profess their gratitude for road salt. It’s our only defense against snow and ice. The downside is that the salt basically coats your entire car, which is bad for your paint——but good for this moose.



Ryan and his companions got a huge kick out of the moose’s interest.

“This was worth the trip.”

It’s not every day you can get this close to a moose without being in any real danger!
