VERMONT - There's a moose on the loose at a ski resort in Vermont, and the animal is taking skiers by surprise and becoming somewhat of a celebrity.

It literally chased Jeff Palmer from his skis. "I was like you gotta be kidding me, this thing is coming right for me."

He was near the Gatehouse Plaza at Sugarbush two days before Christmas, when he noticed a bull moose headed right for him. He popped off his skis and ran.
