Angry moose puts Mass. logger on the run
Loggers aren’t typically fazed by the sight of a moose, but one Belchertown man encountered a moose so quarrelsome he had to run for his life. In late September, Peter Brown, 54, was in Shutesbury scoping out the area of his current logging job when he returned to his skidder — a type of tractor used in logging — and saw a large moose by the vehicle. A logger for 35 years, Brown was no stranger to the animals. He approached cautiously, hoping to capture a picture of the behemoth.
