Hazardous golf: Utah couple flees lumbering moose during Memorial Day round
PARK CITY, Utah – A Utah couple ran into a different sort of hazard during a round of golf on Memorial Day near Salt Lake City.
A young moose bigger than their golf cart chased them off the links at the Park City Golf Club.
Mark Redican told the Deseret News the moose lumbered after them twice during what had otherwise been a peaceful holiday outing.
He says he was getting ready to hit a shot when his wife started yelling. They jumped in the cart and made an escape as the animal headed off to a nearby pond. But he says it wasn’t long before it started chasing them again.
Redican says it wasn’t super aggressive and he’s not sure they were ever in any danger, but he says it was “gigantic” so they weren’t going to hang around to find out.
