Scenario 7

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

You are now between Eagle and Circle - the snow is much deeper on this part of the trail than on the Yukon side. You start to notice lots of moose tracks punched through the trail. The dogs suddenly speed up, and you come around a corner and run smack into a cow moose - standing in the middle of the trail - head down, pawing the snow and snorting. Your lead dogs are on her before you can stop them, and she is kicking at your team with all four feet. Some dogs are screaming and they are all lunging to get away.

  • Why is the moose on the trail? 
  • Why would she attack your team? 
  • What should you do? 
  • What are the race rules for this incident?
