Anchorage resident Don Rearden caught this moose on camera having some fun with a tire swing at his Bear Valley home.

According to Rearden, the moose was keeping close to his house--he suspected a bear was nearby keeping the momma moose on the lookout.

“About twenty minutes after the tire incident a black bear came through, and they had a little standoff,” he wrote in an email, lamenting that he didn’t get that part on film. “Then when the bear left she rounded up her calf in the brush and headed down to our neighbor’s house (where she stashes her calf near his solar panels — for the last week now)”

The clip is only a minute long, but Rearden says he watched the moose nudge the tire swing for fifteen minutes or so.
