Baby Moose Walks into Theater and Leaves with a Mcdonald

A hungry moose was caught on camera walking into a movie theater in Kenai, Alaska, before taking off with a Mcdonald’S Happy Meal.

Kenai Films employees were surprised when the animal entered the building last week and began rummaging through the garbage.

In a video posted on social media, an employee can be heard saying, “He’s not leaving” while The moose sticks its muzzle into an old box of happy meals.

The head of the theater said that he believes that the animal was attracted by the smell of popcorn.


This comes just weeks after a moose wandered through an automatic door into the lobby of an Anchorage hospital, and started eating potted plants.

A video posted on social media shows the animal wandering through the front door from the outside as an employee says “What am I doing” and repeats “no, no, no.’

The curious moose shyly enters the theater, seems to sniff the air, then begins to rummage through the garbage on the other side of the room.

You hear the staff laughing and saying, “There’s nothing I can do. Get out, this is where you belong. You can’t watch a Movie.’

Other images show employees taking out the animal, whose muzzle is still attached to the Happy Meal box.

Theater director Ricky Black told Anchorage Daily News that his first reaction was to laugh at the situation.

“She was behind the counter,” he said of the employee. “She was not in immediate peril from The moose,. And she says, “Stop laughing. This is serious.”‘

He said he thought the smell of popcorn attracted the animal. The theater’s front door had been opened to let in fresh air while staff cleaned the popcorn machine, which gives off a lot of heat-and the distinctive smell of popcorn, Black explained.

It could definitely smell like that popcorn. It’s just a very common reaction for anyone or anything that comes out in theaters,” he added.

Nick Fowler, a wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of fish and game, told the outlet that this is the time of year when moose are most nutritionally restricted.

I don’t know if a Happy Meal is good for a moose or not. However, I can say with confidence that it is not in his natural diet,” Fowler said.

He added that in such situations, “the best thing we can almost always do is make sure that there is enough distance and that we do not approach the animal”.

This comes weeks after another moose entered the Providence Health Park medical facility in Anchorage – and had to be escorted out by security forces.

The young moose headed straight for potted plants as hospital employees and civilians took photos and videos of the unusual sighting.

When hospital security arrived, the moose looked down with security guards.

Randy Hughes, the hospital’s director of safety, said: “It’s not every day that a moose comes into a building, so everyone was excited to take pictures and stuff like that.’

To prevent the large animal from going on a rampage, people helped to form a circle, while others kept a few twigs from the plants to try to move the moose to the automatic doors.

No one was issue and the animal finally left before taking a nap in the snow in front of the building.
