Years ago I worked with a guy who told me 'never argue with a moose', then told me about an incident a friend of his had had in New Hampshire(?). On that occasion the friend was driving along a back road when he came opon a moose blocking the road. He honked his car horn, but the moose didn't budge, so he honked again. This time the moose charged, kicked at the car, and totalled the front end! I don't know if this is really true, but moose are a lot bigger than the average white-tailed deer, and can be quite cranky as well.
