I was in Vermont last year and as I was driving up Route 100 there was a female Moose by the side of the road. I stopped to watch her and saw there was a young moose near her. I stayed in the car and at a good distance. Then a car with New Jersey plates came up, stopped, and the driver got out, walking toward the mother moose with his camera. He was following her into the woods and getting close to getting between mother and child moose. I rolled down my window and shouted to him, "If you don't want to be stomped to death by a 700 pound moose, I would suggest you don't do that.". I don't think he knew that I probably just saved his life.
That works the same when getting between a Texas housewife and her kids!
