Moose charges snowmobile, flees after warning shot
JACKMAN (WGME) -- Two snowmobilers in Jackman have quite the story to tell after a moose charges at the New Hampshire couple.
Janis Powell and her husband were taking one final snowmobile ride for the season on Friday, when they saw a moose on the trail.
Powell says the moose started to run off, but it then stopped and turned toward her husband.
Powell says she reached for her handgun, fired a shot and the moose walked away.
"I wouldn't even call it a sigh of relief," Powell told CBS 13 News over the phone. "It was more than a sigh, it was an oh my god we just narrowly escaped what could have been a very, very serious situation."
Powell says she has a new found respect for moose and will keep more distance in the future.
