At about 11:30 p.m. I took the dog out the back door to do his business one last time before bed. The dog immediately jumped off the back deck, and as my eyes adjusted, I noticed some very tall legs literally 15 feet from the doorâit was a cow moose and a calf right alongside her. I yelled for the dog to get back into the house, but he decided he needed to be the protector and went at the cow moose. But the moose also needed to protect her calf, so she made a charge at the dog. And the dog wasn't going to come out on the winning end of that equation.
After some excitement and a lot of yelling, the dog finally came back into the house, but he was not ready to settle down because he knew there was still an intruder on the property. So I grabbed my new 6PX Pro and headed out the backdoor. The moose, already annoyed and on high alert, headed straight in my direction as soon as I stepped outside. I clicked the tailcap twice, for the 200-lumen maximum output, and lit up the angry moose. She immediately changed direction from heading straight for me and veered around to the other side of the house. A few minutes later, the faithful dog had a look around the property to be sure all was safe, and we both headed back inside. Thanks to the 6PX Pro, we resolved a dangerous situation without lethal force to the moose or any injuries to man or his best friend.
