A passenger in a car driving along Mount Werner Circle opens the passenger side door of the car and positions herself to grab that once-in-a-lifetime shot of a moose walking through the nearby vegetation. It's a dangerous situation according to officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife who warn that the animals are incredibly dangerous. People should give the animals plenty of room and avoid aggravating them whenever possible. Cars may not always offer protection from the animals that have been known to ram vehicles with their heads and front hooves. Photo by John F. Russell
