Snowmobiling father fights off moose with Glock (VIDEO)

A 51-year-old man with a life-threatening heart condition fended off a 1,000 pound moose with a Glock when it started attacking him and his son.

The moose charged the man, so he quickly chambered a round into his pistol and fired several rounds into the animal before speeding past it, Field and Stream reports.

Before shooting the animal, the father tried scaring it away by making loud noises, but to no avail. After being struck in the chest by the moose, he used his pistol to eliminate the threat.
