MONTANA -- A couple of snowboarders are getting more attention than they ever expected because of a close encounter they had on the slopes.

Charlie Rush and Hunter Lamoureux were snowboarding at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana recently when they stumbled upon a moose.

The guys said they were just trying to get around the animal, but Rush was fined $225 for harassing it.

Both men have been taking a lot of heat after posting the video online. Rush is considering fighting the fine to clear his name.

Luckily for both men, the moose ended up running into the trees, and did not attack them.
