Photo: Moose Viking Trail Northern Peninsula Newfoundland

They were first introduced to Newfoundland in 1904 and now they are the most dominate hoofed animal in that province.

... Also a mother with her calf has to be careful as predators will try to bring down the calf as it is a lot smaller.

It is surprising to learn that moose can be aggressive, and if they feel threatened they can attack people; they actually do attack more people than bears and wolves put together.
