This is strange because the moose was very friendly initially. But the animal was looking for food treats. It seems it was habituated to getting treats from tourists. The child had petted the moose while it requested food. Something that the child did seems to have irritated or frightened the moose. He/she rears up on its hind legs and hits the child with the hooves of its forelegs. It looks dangerous. The moose also attacks another. The incidents were not highly dangerous but they could have resulted in a nasty injury. They did not, it appears.

Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
