Moose and idiots

With the advent of a new year, it’s a race to see who can win the first Darwin award of the season.

If your money was on a group of imbeciles at Grand Teton National Park on Friday, you could have been a big winner because they did everything possible to win the trophy. But Darwin doesn’t always win.

There are three moose in their immediate vicinity. None of which seem to be happy. Two of which appear to be fighting each other.

These are clues — to people who have functioning brains — to leave the area.

These are not clues to set up your tripod and begin taking photos.

But that’s what these dolts did.

It’s astounding that after a dimwitted biker made international news last summer for getting attacked by a bison (and losing her pants in the process), that tourists still believe that wild animals are happy muppets that want to hugged.

They want to be left alone. Just ask the Montana man who snuck up on a grizzly in an abandoned shed last summer.

The person who took the video of these jackasses and then posted it on Facebook said it best: “I was rooting for Darwin.”
