Norwegian Boy Saves Sister from Moose Thanks to World of WarCraft


?From Next Nature (who also provide the amazing pic above), and sent in by several readers:

Hans J?rgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, saved himself and his
sister from a moose attack using skills he picked up playing the
online role playing game World of Warcraft.

Hans and his sister got into trouble after they had trespassed the
territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home. When
the moose attacked them, Hans knew the first thing he had to do was
‘taunt’ and provoke the animal so that it would leave his sister alone
and she could run to safety. ‘Taunting’ is a move one uses in World of
Warcraft to get monsters off of the less-well-armored team members.

Once Hans was a target, he remembered another skill he had picked up
at level 30 in ‘World of Warcraft’ – he feigned death. The moose lost
interest in the inanimate boy and wandered off into the woods. When he
was safely alone Hans ran back home to share his tale of video
game-inspired survival.
