Did you think out-of-the-ordinary events began to happen in 2020?

In 2007, a then-12-year-old boy and his sister survived a moose attack in Trøndelag – in an unparalleled way.

An angry moose strikes

Hans Jørgen Olsen (then 12) and his sister (then 10) were walking to their school bus stop on a November morning.

Sub-Arctic conditions in November make for very long nights and short days. So, it was still dark outside.

Then an angry moose attacked – before the siblings could see it approaching.

Playing dead

His sister ran away, but Hans Jørgen didn’t manage to.

The moose hit him in the backpack and back.

Unable to run, the 12-year-old went straight to the ground. He lay completely still and played dead until the moose retreated.

Hans later attributed his survival skills to World of Warcraft. “Just like you learn at level 30”, he said of playing dead.

Other than a little back pain, Hans had no serious injuries.

The moose’s fate

Crews from local law offices went out searching for the moose immediately.

The moose was found later in the day, in a residential area, completely unafraid of humans and aggresive.

Vicious and weighing in at around 180 kilograms, the moose was put down the following day as a threat to local residents.
