Jeremiah Bigelow said he and his brother got separated on a trail in Idaho, and a wild moose got between them.

Jeremiah was getting video of his brother trying to distract the moose, when it suddenly charged, trampling the snowmobile and tumbling into the snow.

The moose ran off after the encounter. The only injured party was the snowmobile, which suffered some dents and scrapes.
