Even among buddies, one bull moose feels the need to exert his dominance.
Despite being primarily solitary animals, bull moose sometimes form small “bachelor groups.”
In the video, originally shared by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Facebook page on Dec. 6, a group of three bull moose can be seen hanging out at a local ranch.
The moose were spotted at Warm Springs Ranch in Fairplay, Colorado.
Despite the initial amicable dynamic, one moose appears to be the boss and seems keen to remind the rest of the group of that fact.
The moose engages another’s antlers and they scuffle briefly before the other moose backs off.
The moose are able to thrive as part of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s (CPW) species conservation and wildlife re-introduction programs.
Thanks to the program, Colorado now boasts some of the most diverse and abundant wildlife populations in North America as it’s home to an astonishing 960 wildlife species.
