A family in Wyoming recently recorded a rarely seen event: a bull moose literally dropping an antler.
“The moose shook his head and his paddle fell off right in front of us!” says Kim Eberhart, who saw the whole scene outside of her family's cabin. (The family doesn't want to identify the specific location out of fears the animal might be targeted by hunters.) “It was amazing,” she says.
Eberhart adds, “He then looked a little scared and stunned and was shaking his head and made a really mournful sound afterwards.”
In the video, shot by Eberhart’s uncle, a woman can be heard saying: “He's in pain, he's crying. Poor guy.”
But the moose more likely experienced a sense of relief, says moose
