2016—Locking Horns

On our last full day in Alaska, at the German Bridge on Campbell Creek, we spent hours watching at least 7 bull moose in the area at one time.  The locals who walked by us commented about the rarity of seeing such a thing, especially during rutting season.  The bulls were not very aggressive toward one another and, as I posted a couple of days ago, a few even settled into the grass near each other to snooze.  I witnessed only two events of aggression and this was the first with the better view.  The head butting was a bit halfhearted and between butts, one would lean down and grab a branch to munch on before locking horns again.
