In the video, Curtis Phelps can be seen leaving his house to take a bag to a secured shed in the yard. As he opens the doors, a bull moose wanders into the frame.

When the Phelps turns around from the shed, the moose speeds up in his direction. Phelps takes his option of ducking inside the shed, closing the doors to barricade himself from the moose. After a few seemingly curious moments, the moose moves on.
