There’s not many things on this planet more magnificent than a massive moose — unless that moose happens to have her babies along. Well, some very lucky neighbors in Alaska got a special treat recently, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
It’s a well-known fact that people shouldn’t mess with a mother animal and her babies.
So, when this mama moose decided to take over a front lawn with her two calves, the homeowners could only watch – and laugh.
It wasn’t the moose’s fault, of course.
It was one hot day in in the suburbs of Eagle River, Alaska.
Anything to cool down the family was worth the risk of wandering through a neighborhood for mama moose and little ones in tow.
And, there in the front of one home was welcome relief from the heat – lawn sprinklers.
“They just strolled around the house and looked really hot,” Candice Helm told the local TV news station. “So we turned on the sprinklers and they were happy.”
Happy indeed – the moose trio looked like the latest wild animal dance act at a Las Vegas show.
Mama moose led the way, stomping on the lawn and shaking her head in the cool water.
Her twin calves frolicked back and forth through the spraying sprinkler like two children jumping for joy.
The moose mayhem was caught on video and spread like wildfire on the internet.
Helm’s act of kindness loaning out her yard and lawn sprinklers to the moose family has its own reward.
She’ll have a lasting memory of some hilarious, frolicking moose dancing around the lawn.
