    "The 13 hikers out Saturday on a trail in Ogden Canyon when one of the hikers’ dogs found the moose, which charged at the group."

    A better headline would be:

    "Hiker's dog startles moose and provokes charge."

    The moose definitely broke the law.

    In Utah, a human clearly has the right of self-defense against a threatening animal. It is my understanding, that in one of the recent encounters between a human and a moose, the moose actually struck the human with it's hooves. Under those circumstances, it would seem reasonable, before the actual trampling, that the person could have shot the moose in self-defense. Those hiking this time of year should carefully read Utah Administrative Rules R657-63-3. Notice this Rule contains a stand-your-ground provision (no retreat required by the person) and the unequivocal policy statement that human life takes priority over animal life.

    I suspect the moose was an enraged Hillary supporter still reacting to the election loss.
