In the animal kingdom the battle for a mate is also possible brutal, particularly for the loser. But it seems that in an lamentable turn of events in the wilderness of Alaska, even the winner of a pitched battle cannot is ensured survival.
Frozen in the moment of an epic clank for reign, two male moose grew entwined and expired, subsequently becoming perfectly preserved in a flow as the temperature plummeted. The encounter between the brutishes was perhaps over access to girls, as the males struggle for predominance and the human rights of teammate. But in quality, situations dont always go to plan.
The breathtaking find was documented by Jeff Erickson, of the smaller western Alaskan village of Unalkeleet, who was alerted to the battling moose by a friend, Brad Webster. When he arrived, “hes found” the last minute of the men frozen in timein the clear frost of the river. But after returning subsequently with a vehicle and the means of removing the moose( a chainsaw ), all that could be seen under a dense dust of snow was the two antlers of the beleaguered devils sticking out.
Erickson reckons that the fatal contest are likely to have passed after one of the males delivered a deadly punch to the other, but then felt itself fatally interlocked with its challenger. It appears that one of the forehead tines( on the antler) penetrated and may have ended this( battle) fast, leaving the winner with a 1000 pound headdress and probably gathered his head into the ocean where he drowned, Erikson told independent reporter Craig Medred.
The last moments of these mighty moosehave been removed intact from the river, with Webster planning on generate a very unique intelligence organize. As if you needed anything else to persuasion you of the barbarism and beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.
