ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- An Anchorage, Alaska, man captured video of two moose brawling their way down a residential street amid the animals' mating season.
Bill Tyra and his son, Josh, captured video Friday of the two moose fighting their way through the Goldenview Park subdivision in the southern part of the city.
The video was partially recorded from behind a vehicle before Tyra moved to a nearby ledge to capture the action.
"My son and I had front row seats," Tyra told KTVA-TV.
Experts said the two moose were likely fighting over a female amid the ongoing rutting -- or mating -- season.
"Behaviors emerge that have been dormant for the past year as moose engage in rituals related solely to reproduction," the National Park Service states. "Their uneventful lives quickly become hectic as bulls compete for breeding rights and cows seek out mating overtures from bulls."
The NPS said bull moose enter the season prepared to fight, as "during the rut, the neck muscles of bull moose expand to twice their normal size."
