Wild Moose Rings Doorbell With Its Butt

By author of The Realblog with Stephanie Mallory

If you live in a neighborhood with teenagers, there's a decent chance you've been the victim of ding-dong ditching -- an age-old favorite prank among youth which involves ringing a doorbell, usually late at night, and then running before someone opens the door. 

One Alaskan couple assumed they were the target of ding-dong ditchers when their doorbell rang around 1:30 a.m., but no one was there when they opened the door. When they checked their security camera footage, they were shocked to discover the culprit was not a mischievous kid, but rather a bull moose, well, a bull moose's caboose to be exact. You see, the moose had actually backed into the doorbell with its rear end. The couple got a kick out of the footage and say it's nice to have some comic relief after the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck near Anchorage last week.
