And you are not necessarily correct when you say grizzlies are mean and aggressive.
While it’s true that moose typically aren’t aggressive towards people, if provoked, they can be deadly. Unlike deer (the moose’s close cousin), moose aren’t usually afraid of humans, so they won’t run away just because you ‘re there.
Diet: Moose are herbivores. In the summer, moose feed on leaves, grasses and underwater plants. Since they are herbivores, there is an extra challenge because plants are not as high in energy as meat . This is why moose tend to set up territories in areas with nutritional food sources.
Moose inhabit the northern parts of North America and Eurasia. In North America four subspecies are recognized, including the eastern moose (A. alces shirasi), which inhabits the Rocky Mountains in the United States and Canada; and the Alaskan moose (A. alces gigas), which inhabits Alaska and northwestern Canada.
