Wildlife AttacksCanada goose attacks

We don't want to create hysteria or false fears. But the fact remains that animal attacks do occur (particularly in Africa) and pose a significant threat to human health and safety when they do occur.

  • Black Bears
  • Canada Geese
  • Grizzley Bears
  • Cougars (AKA Mountain Lions)
  • Coyotes
  • Deer
  • Feral hogs
  • Elk
  • Moose
    • Moose attacks usually occur during mating season (falll) and rearing of young (summer). Males (bull moose) are most aggressive during mating season where your presence might be interpreted as competition for females.  Females attack during the raising of young out of concern to protect their off-spring.
    • Various attacks have been filmed and can be found on Youtube.
  • Raccoons
